From the Annals of Astonishment

I was just reading an interview with Michael Kupperman on the "internet" and the phone rang! And it was the history professor on the line, and the history professor's son was calling out from the other room, saying, "Tell Jack he should read the comics by this guy Michael Kupperman!" And then I was like, "WHAT? I am reading about him RIGHT NOW!" And then I was like, "Michael Kupperman is illustrating my next piece for McSweeney's!" And we all fainted from astonishment. It made me think of the time McNeil and I were talking about Bob Denver and Bob Denver suddenly appeared on the TV! It's true what they say: there really are miracles here in our modern times.
