Pertaining to "MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE," a further compendium of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE, and its author. That is all.
They're not summoning a real doctor, but they are summoning a real worm.
If not a worm, perhaps the the Dunwich Horror. I think those are in season.
It's in the middle of a parking lot type thing, so it really doesn't make sense at all. Oh, the mysteries of UNH!
I'm guessing John was referring, not to Dunwich Horror, but to Dune?PS: I was in Brookline Booksmith on Thursday for an n+1 event, and saw the H-in-sunrays hobo sign chalked on the wall. I laughed, and tried to explain to the n+1 guys, but to no avail.I loved hobo signs when I was a kid. I think I read about them in a Danny Dunn book?
I literally laughed out loud when I read "UNLESS THEY ARE SUMMONING A WORM." The H-in-Sunrays will now forever mean hobo-sign to me. It is indeed the spice that allows us to travel and Hodgman is my head mentat. No hollow teeth for you!And I would not be surprised if the uneven step and shuffle of the dessert dwellers was inspired by hobos, or vice versa.^_^
