I’ve taken Harlan Ellison’s advice into consideration and enacted Automatic Digi Super-Duper Readi Payments™ on this site. Your credit card will be billed $1 if you continue reading this fine post. Still reading? Wonderful… processing. Thank you!
April Fools’ aside, this is a classic snippet–apologies if it’s old hat to you–that still cracks me up. Mr. Ellison waxes poetic about the crossroads between words, dollars, and loathsome amatuers. Warning for those with kids leering over their shoulders or in work-type places, Mr. Ellison also manages some serious potty mouth.
