I just had to read it Even if it IS post modem But let's forget about Eric Idle He doesn't deserve diddly suat It's all privilege he probably came from a rich family that had all competition crippled in horrible car accidents I know his type He has a Thanks To that concludes w all the comedians too humorous to mention No doubt he has them in stitches It was a guilty conscience that led to the invention of micropaleontology — not HIS guilty conscience of course one of his victim's I lecture on insignificance I'm a micropaleontologist You may be unaware of the study labeled micropaleontology occasionally microanthropology which was the first really brand new science of the Double Ages the second millennium It is my job to study the evolutionary implications of the last ten minutes p 4 Idle even goes so far as to admit that his wealthy family stole micropaleontology so that Eric cd have an edge if only they cd keep people's memories on only the last 10 minutes every crime cd be covered up before there was time to notice You try it with any comedians you can think of and I tell you it works Carlton this smart little tintellectual is on to something real here Just look for the distinguishing characteristics the White Face is the controlling neurotic and the Red Nose is the rude rough Pan The White Face compels your respect; the Red Nose begs for it The Red Nose smiles and nods and winks and wants your love; the White Face rejects it He never smiles; he is always deadly serious Never so than when doing comedy Men says Carlton Have two major organs the brain and the penis and only enough blood to run one at a time p 7 See? You already forgot Blue is yr post hypnotic suggestion cue Repeat ad nauseum pretend to be a sound poet Do you have a criminal record? Good heavens I had no idea one was still reuired BRITISH JOKE ABOUT ENTERING AUSTRALIA p 19 Blue You have relinguished all rights to privacy Men were by no means the only victims of this hijack by the harpies and perhaps they had it coming anyway There was a lot of bullshit bleating about it at the time as men found themselves perhaps for the first time vulnerable to particularly public forms of female revenge Women it seemed could hardly wait to get laid to lay pen to paper saving semen stained souvenirs to offer as evidence for the courtroom or the studio it didn't matter which since both were on television now Sharon reveals all Naked pictures of the girl who fucked the country Read the book of the blow job p 67 Sharon reveals all She put a pencil naked geek to paper laid waste to Brian Trevor Kevin But what does any of this have to do w the STORY the LINE of the bk you ask? Believe me I have no idea I finished reading this bk on August 12 2018; it's now August 27 2018 — a whole 15 days later — ever since that word BLUE appeared in this review against my will I might add I have no idea what the conspiracy of this review is — let alone the plot of the novel Is my post hypnotic suggestion to use that new app that writes reviews for me wo even reading the bks? What's it called? Professor? Words were the key Words Of course The censored electronic gibberish was in an old fashioned word based key It was a government computer They were using the new Dumb Technology To try and outsmart very smart computers some agencies were resorting to stupidity Simple almost childish passwords were substituted for lengthy euations How do you baffle a computer which can speed through several multibillion number combinations? Simple you use a word like cat You're going under its intelligence threshold It cannot factor you to be so dumb It was like comedy he thought p 86 Dumb Technology includes Dumb Missiles of course All that matters any is that you have to kill somebody Death goes on Death comes to the supermarket Death comes to the interior decorator Either that wallpaper goes or I do LAST WORDS OF OSCAR WILDE p 93 I should be so witty Carlton not Really He thinks he almost finds some evidence with one of the guys on a very weird show called Monty Python's Flying Circus I've seen the tapes and boy does it suck It's strange rather than funny Five Limeys and a Yank No girls; they did drag Typical Brits They're never happier than when dressing up as women What is it with them? It's a stupid show as I say and Carlton found it totally puzzling Heads come off or pop open in demented animations sheep drop on people's heads for no reason whatsoever Vikings sing love songs to pressed meat weird men dressed as old ladies sueak in silly voices there are dead parrots and Spanish Inuisitions it's all very silly nonsense They seem dangerously cuckoo to me Carlton couldn't make head or tail of it but it seemed from the tape that the audience laughed and as far as he could tell it was genuine not canned laughter p 147 There's some confusion at this point It's Really who's found the evidence but given the 10 minute memory rule Really had already forgotten what it was evidence of Carlton laughed at him but his laughter cd only be canned so it didn't matter Only the Dumb Technology can even remember anything any It was the Washing Machine Puffing and blowing towards them So suddenly I'm chopped liver?

Bugs? said Alex How many are there? If you hurry there'll be less said Carlton p 171 There's even a little math humor It's not uite in the same league as Paradigm Shift Knuckle Sandwich other examples of PNT Perverse Number Theory wch all 21st century people were reuired to read until the word Blue appeared but it's in the same ballpark I have discovered a truly marvelous proof of comedy which this margin is too narrow to contain FAREWELL TO FERMAT CARLTON'S LAST THEOREM The proof is in the pudding Levity Laughing matter The cosmic joke Brilliant isn't it? Levity Expanding the Universe So simple We're all moving at the speed of laughter Time Timing The secret of comedy is We are the only point in the present in the entire visible Universe In every direction we are looking backwards in time Want to see the past? It's above your head p 205 When I bought this bk for very cheap I didn't notice at 1st that most of the pages were torn out that what little was left was mostly blacked out I was so engrossed in Idle's excellent writing that I didn't notice that the pages went from 4 to 7 to 19 to 67 to 86 to 93 to 146 to 147 to 171 to 198 to 205 Sure I found the plot hard to follow but I just thought Idle was being absurd He's so good at that So if my review seems a bit discombobulated to you that's why To recapitulate I lecture on insignificance I'm a micropaleontologist You may be unaware of the study labeled micropaleontology occasionally microanthropology which was the first really brand new science of the Double Ages the second millennium It is my job to study the evolutionary implications of the last ten minutes You try it with any comedians you can think of and I tell you it works Carlton this smart little tintellectual is on to something real here Just look for the distinguishing characteristics the White Face is the controlling neurotic and the Red Nose is the rude rough Pan The White Face compels your respect; the Red Nose begs for it The Red Nose smiles and nods and winks and wants your love; the White Face rejects it He never smiles; he is always deadly serious Never so than when doing comedy Men says Carlton Have two major organs the brain and the penis and only enough blood to run one at a time Do you have a criminal record?

text ↠ The Road To Mars Õ Eric Idle

Anetary vaudeville circuit of the future Accompanied by Carlton a robot incapable of understanding irony but driven to learn the essence of humor Alex and Lewis bumble their way into an intergalactic terrorist plot Supported by a delicious cast inc As one might expect Idle's discussion of comedy is significantly better than the sci fi noir humor novel in which he packages it Good stuff for anyone who thinks deeply about comedy though it is also worth noting how uickly fake sci fi that is the genre used as a pastiche rather than a vessel for serious thought and world crafting can seem dated
