It was a stark and dorm-y night at the girls' school; the rain fell in Torrance (California), not on the plain in Spain, except at perfect fifth intervals, when it was Chucked by a violinist's gust of wind which swept out the pits (for it is in Lesbos that obscene lies), rattling the thongs and tube-tops, and fiercely aggravating the pantied dame and the tramps that snuggled against his hardness.
Suddenly, a slut ran out!
"You? Ewe? Ewww!" she shrieked, unwilling to wear the woolen ware.
Thus, like two quips passing in the night, their Foghorn Leghorns roosting in the chicken coop, cutting the fog-thick pea soup with their mournful moans, they sailed off between (Pri-)Scylla and Charyb(bean)dis, dissing Odysseus, Zeus, Seuss, and Seuss yer old man, until one day, at the Apollo theater, the Fates brought them together, took their Clotho-ff, Aphrodite aphrodisiacked them, Hymen de-parted, Hera shout of ecstasy, and Parody was born.
The first paragraph was our little satire of the (rather long) opening sentence of the novel, "Paul Clifford"
, by Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton, whose opening phrase, "It was a dark and stormy night", has become famous in pop culture.
The second paragraph was a satire of the character, "Snoopy", from the comic strip, "Peanuts"®, whose novels often started with, "It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out!". The third: TT's dozen or so solo sheep encounters of the parodic kind. The fourth is a bag of mixed-up metaphors, from Greek mythology to cartoon characters, recounting our joining forces. Overall, a good warning of what kind(s) of humor to expect. Or to paraphrase Dante's "Inferno", "Abandon all hope, ye who read below." But we hope you enjoy!
