I just deleted the last twenty-one comments. There seems to be no way to reverse that. Sorry.
From “Mr. Squishy”:

I hope to write some more extended reflections on some of Wallace’s fiction in the near future. One thing I have in mind is an interpretation of the above-quoted story. His humor might be underappreciated.
