Fridge: Kurt Vonnegut
Fridge Brilliance
  • Back in the Boy Scouts, circa twelve years ago, my group of early teenagers was given a Mad Libs card and told to write our introduction. So of course we were a group of space aliens here in the camp to seduce Earth's women through farts and tap dancing. I only found out here that farts and tap dancing are a form of alien language in Kurt Vonnegut's aliens. He used them as a parable for miscommunication.
