Some wag over at comics.com said that Discarded Plot Threads box should be a lot bigger.
Actually, the box opens into a secret underground storage facility the size of Manhattan. An army of of blind, hairless mice catalog tens of thousands of errant, hopeless, dead-end, nonsensical, profane and ridiculously complicated plot threads. From Vlad Raptor’s Attractiveness Deficit Disorder Seminars to Verne Crashes Obama’s Inauguration In Hopes of Becoming First Pet. It’s a treasure trove of misguided notions and last-second-on-deadline-non sequiturs. And an Ant Farm.
Thanks, hairless, blind mice for a job well done. Now back to work, before I ship the whole operation to Bangalore.*
*I’ve found that hairless, blind mice respond well to veiled threats of outsourcing.
