Paradox!

October 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Paradox introduced himself to me early morning last Wednesday and told me that the observation of a green apple was evidence that all ravens are black. So we sat down and discussed his intriguing argument and I began to draw his portrait. After several pathetic attempts to portray the observation of a green apple evidencing black ravens, I realized that Cliché was in the room and seriously misguiding my attempts to accurately portray Paradox. So I booted her out with threats of original metaphors and got back to work to find that Paradox had left. Not only had he left physically but he had also left me with no suggestion or reference point from which to continue my work. Needless to say it has been an aggravating week trying to pin down Paradox for you. And rather than leave you with no hint of a beast this week, I have chosen to regale you with this tale of conflict, deep irony and truth. My sincere apologies. I promise to be more selective in the beasts I showcase form now on.
