Sample Aphorisms

  1. Cover Seas and Fables Meet

    Art by Cristina Miranda de Almeida

    Obscurity is an accomplishment. It takes a lot of clear thinking to come up with something truly obscure.

  2. Sincerity is the new irony.
  3. If all else fails read the instructions. If instructions fail, then call up the instructor.
  4. “Everything I got for Christmas needs a battery”. A comment by a 21st-century child.
  5. You don’t need LSD when you have a PC.
  6. I may be wrong but I’m still trying to tell the truth.
  7. “I have short-term memory loss. Sorry. I forgot to tell you”.
  8. In the future we will all be forgotten for 15 minutes.
