THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraph comes to us from actor-now-novelist Sean Penn.  It is from his first book, with the deep, introspective title “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” (no typos there, folks, that’s actually the title).

If you haven’t already moved on to the next blog or another website, let me treat you to a typical paragraph from this, er, work of art:

“Whenever he felt these collisions of incubus and succubus, he punched his way out of the proletariat with the purposeful inputting of covert codes, thereby drawing distraction through Scottsdale deployments, dodging the ambush of innocents astray, evading the viscount vogue of Viagratic assaults on virtual vaginas, or worse, falling passively into prosaic pastimes.”

I’ll give you until eternity to figure out what that means.

The good news is, it is found on page 36…which means that, if the first 35 pages are of similar “quality”, almost no one will get to it.

I award Sean Penn Paragraph Of The Day “honors” for showing us that his writing is like his political positions:  supercilious and unintelligible.
