A Diversion

This is a little bit of Friday fun. Sars writes for the inimitable Television Without Pity, MSNBC, and her own site, Tomato Nation. For the last three weeks she's been posting chapters of a wonderfully absurd sort of comic-book-style pseudo-novel, Subheroes. Witness:

Sometimes, you need Frat Boy Pranksters. You try not to need Frat Boy Pranksters, because you will get a call like this every damn time. Every time. "Now we can't catch the pig," "we ran out of bowling balls," "can Diz bring us an extension cord and some Crisco," it never stops. Unfortunately, when you need an entire living room out on a lawn in half an hour, you don't have much choice.

If you're not already a Tomatohead, go get hooked on it.
