When I spotted “Entropy in 606 Words,” by Derek Zumsteg, my first thought was, It’s the toothbrush guy! Despite the complicated subtitle (“A Fictional Exploration of Current Thinking on Localized Entropic Models and Possible Associated Unexpected Phenomena”), the first line is simple enough:
Tom wake up more dumb. Bonk head on bed.
The diction alone is funny. I have to admit on the first read, I was struggling as hard as caveman mode Tom to figure out what was going on. I still don’t get the allusion to Localized Entropic Models. But the punch line is a joke even a caveman would get.
Sounds dumb. Thinks smart.
