Questionable Literary Parallels (QLP)

"Sometimes the weak become strong and nothing ever goes the way you think it is going to. It's just like the Good Country People story how the so called "bible salesman" turns out to be the bad guy in the end, except for instead of Horus stealing a leg he gets bit in the foot and dies."

Flannery O'Connor called and said he wants his wooden nihilism returned umm, like yesterday and he wants you to hold all those high school students back a year or at least until they learn to read. Wait, you say they're sophmores in college? Second year English Lit majors? I'm going to go kill myself. Call ya later...

In my students' defense, they're all hapless freshman; very few are humanities majors of any sort, let along English. Don't kill yourself until you know it's really gonna COUNT.

I can't pretend to know what any of you guys are on about (except the students, who ALL seem to speak my language) but I have to say that no one called 'Flannery' should be a woman.
