Not to be obtuse, but that must be a joke, right? Nobody could actually believe such madness, could they? An insane point of view.

Yes. That's why it's so funny!

The first person I passed this along to asked me the same question.

Come on, his flowing locks of hair!

This had me seriously LOL, for real.

Everyone should read George Saunders' short stories - they are the funniest I have ever read. I defy you to read "Sea Oak" from Pastoralia and not laugh out loud vigorously and profusely, maybe even squirting coffee through your nasal passages and scalding the membranes quite badly, like I did.
