|CHAPTER 11 There was another VIP named aFrankie & Johnny,
2 Who thought a lot about the way things were going,
3 And figured it all out,
4 And wrote it down in some very important books and plays,
5 bThat changed the world.
CHAPTER 21 All by himself, Frankie & Johnny figured out that,
2 To all intents and purposes,
3 cHe was all by himself.
4 For example, he figured out that you couldn't prove there had ever been a God,
5 And if there ever had been a God,
6 He must be dcrazy or edead by now,
7 fBecause just look at how insane everything was,
8 gWith all the wars,
9 hAnd the diseases,
10 iAnd the suffering,
11 jAnd so on.
12 kBesides, you really couldn't even prove that anything existed in the first place,
13 At all,
14 lExcept yourself,
15 As if it mattered,
16 In a godless, insane world.
17 And so he decided to write comedy.
CHAPTER 31 In order to write good comedy, Frankie & Johnny first had to discover the best comedy plot,
||2 Which he did.
3 The plot he discovered was based on a situation in which you couldn't win,
4 No matter what.
CHAPTER 41 For example, it might be that the mcomic hero was suddenly turned into a giant insect,
2 nFor no reason at all,
3 But had to come to terms with it anyway,
4 oBecause what can you do?
CHAPTER 51 Or, it might be that the pcomic hero was trapped inside some indeterminate qlimbo,
2 And couldn't get out,
3 rBecause there wasn't any exit,
4 And had to come to terms with it,
5 sBecause what can you do?
CHAPTER 61 tOr, it might be that the ucomic hero was charged with some unknown crime,
2 vAnd couldn't get off,
3 wBecause no one would ever tell him what he had been charged with,
4 xOr who the judge and jury were,
5 yBut had to come to terms with it anyway,
6 zIncluding the part about getting executed on the last page,
