the big bang theory of fiction

The “Muppet Morsels” glosses on my DVDs of The Muppet Show are sometimes only loosely related to the episode, so it’s hard to remember where this one came from.

I paraphrase: “every skit ends with either an explosion or a digestion.”

I.e., something blows up, or somebody gets eaten.

This could be generally applicable to all fiction.

Boom! Nom nom nom.

Books would be a lot more fun if it was literal.

Elizabeth and Darcy marry–and a giant sheep eats Lady Catherine De Burgh!

Moby Dick explodes!

David Copperfield turns into a zombie and eats everyone!

Your suggestions?

Happy Friday!

  1. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Then it exploded.

    Must see if I can work more booms and noms into this book. Clearly this is what I am missing!
