Holy shit, human beings, the shit they come up with.
Jeremy P Bushnell, The Weirdness: A Novel
- “They rub elbows and bellies and backs, and together they hold winter and its wolves at bay.”
- “Commerce is weird,” Billy says. “I mean, think about it. People buy things.” “And I,” Anil says, “am buying you a drink. Put that goddamn banana away.”
- The Weirdness
- “it appears extremely probable that the whole Egyptian population was allowed a certain participation in the Mysteries; for the tests of a candidate before Initiation were of such a nature that none but human beings developed to a considerable degree of perfection could hope to stand them.”
- “Ya know what? I’m human. I piss, I shit, I fart and belch and vomit when I get sick. I fuck, and I bleed from my crotch once a month like most bio-females my age. Furthermore, I have a bad temper, strong opinions and a bad habit of putting my foot in my mouth at inopportune times. And you know what? I’m not going to pretend those things aren’t as much a part of me along with the intelligence, perseverance, love of talking shop, and pure sexiness, just so I can create a wholly positive image.”
