Once upon a midnight dreary, there was a traveler…
He traveled far, through boring cities, and tedious deserts, and repetitious forests, but he was completely unimpressed. Then, one boring, tedious, repetitious day, he spotted a strange window, high up on a mountain. (It was SO high up, he had to take a ski-lift to get there—which was very boring.) He reached the window and opened it, and saw another world.
Beyond the window was a dangerous world, an EVIL world of green fire and razor blades and thrashing spirits and tempting flesh, and the traveler thought, “THIS looks promising…” And he jumped through the window.
And the traveler was never seen again. Was he happy in the evil realm, or was he trapped there—tortured until he expired? There’s only one way to know for sure! (I’m ready to jump if you are!)
