Shoopah. Alternate title: THE ARTICLE THAT NEVER WAS.
Cut to scene of dentist's office. Two windows on either side of the picture frame.
Cut to black. Dramatic narrative begins, in unconvincing voice.
THE ARTICLE THAT NEVER WAS
HERE BEING, DOCUMENTED IN FULL
THE TRAGEDY OF THIS ARTICLE, AND THE UNNECESSARY ARTICLE DESCRIBING THE TRAGEDY.
The ear. The lightbulb swinging into the ear.
Illogicopedia Author #17 sees--he is mentioned (*DRAMATIC MUSIC. HEART ATTACK MUSIC. HEART PALPITATE*) somewhere. Interesting reference, like a barber only smaller. He sees a term coined in this reference, that isn't actually coined.
With a reversal and a hyphen, he types the term into the search box. The lightbulb burbles excitedly. A pile of books. A database.
He types. He types several lines. They look nifty. He refers to the reference, and to a dentist office. He finishes, but looks at it and says "Naw, this isn't all that good." He goes on to other matters. The article is oblivion.
He then proceeds to write an article in tribute to the article that never was. He uses the same description of the dentist's office with two windows that he used in the original article. Other than that, the original article is lost in his memory. He finishes his tribute article.
The ceiling seems to have gotten closer
I can't tell if it's that or the floor
Scene fades out. Credits roll.
