|7 aStill not having any idea what it was all about,
8 bBecause what can you do?
CHAPTER 71 And when Frankie & Johnny had written quite a lot of comedies based on this plot,
2 He started to get concerned.
3 What if someone started accusing him of repeating himself,
4 Or not really having all that much to say,
5 Or of being cdepressing?
6 And he worried about this quite a lot,
7 While enjoying one of his few leisure-time pursuits,
8 Namely, dRussian Roulette,
9 And Frankie & Johnny was thinking that his next story was going to be a lot like his last story,
10 And was that a problem?,
11 eWhen the bullet in his revolver suddenly spoke out loud,
12 Bringing great news from the future.
CHAPTER 81 Your worries are groundless (said the bullet), for I have seen the future, and you will be regarded as a great writer for years and years and years to come.
2 Indeed, you have been most favored among men,
3 fFor your plot is the one true plot,
4 And will be the basis of all future literature,
5 Until the very end of literature,
6 And maybe even a few decades longer than that.
||CHAPTER 91 Of course, there will be many variations on your discovery,
2 gAnd the initials of the comic heroes will change,
3 hAs will the details of the situation they can't get out of,
4 iBut the essential truth of your vision will be confirmed and celebrated by hundreds of brilliantly talented writers to come,
5 Because once the jtruth has been finally and completely discovered,
6 What else is there to write about?
CHAPTER 101 kFor example, there will come a great writer who will discover the literary value of having ltwo comic heroes,
2 mTrapped inside some indeterminate limbo,
3 nWaiting for someone to show up,
4 oWho never shows up,
5 pBut they have to come to terms with it anyway,
6 qBecause what can you do?
CHAPTER 111 Another great writer will discover the literary value of having a comic hero trapped in a real-life situation he can't get out of,
2 Like a war in some worthless and unimportant foreign country,
3 rWhere you have to blow up a bridge that doesn't really matter,
4 Except that you said you would,
5 sEven if it kills you,
6 Which it will,
