christopher moore on fever

Filed under: Daily Crazies — Sol @ 6:42 pm

I am home, with a stupid sweaty fever, eating bread and drinking hot tea, trying to sweat this crappy fever out of me. And while stuck I am listening to “Fool” by Christopher Moore. Listen, my feverish head is very much out of it as it is, adding this big bucket of remarkably awesome craziness on top is almost too much.

kings court traveling cross country.  they meet a brightly painted wagon with a theater troop in it. Fool (jester/joker) speaks with the man in charge of the theater. Man in charge of said theater says something in lines of:

“We’ve been rehearsing a classic from antiquity – ‘Green eggs and Hamlet.’  The story of a young prince of Denmark who goes mad, drowns his girlfriend, and in remorse forces spoiled breakfast on all whom he meets. It was pieced together from fragments of an ancient American manuscript.”

“No. I think this would be too esoteric for the king. He is old, and nods off during long performances.” (said Fool)

“Shame. A moving piece. Let me do a selection for you! ‘Green eggs or not green eggs, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to eat them in the box… with a fox…’ “

perhaps more tea and hot shower soon. that actually made sense.
