There was an Old man with a wig

Who danced a jiggetty jig

He danced with such passion his face grew quite ashen

And he fell on a great spotted pig

A SENTENCE BY FLANN O’BRIEN

March 28, 2015

The Pooka MacPhellimey, a member of the devil class, sat in his hut in the middle of a firwood meditating on the nature of the numerals and segregating in his mind the odd ones from the even.

This book is exactly like a braided lamp sputtering an effusion of liquid sparkles which make an ordinary parlor seem like a dentist’s nightmare.

This book never once calls attention to itself without first asking the deputy’s permission.
