Addendum to the wotmania Interview: Re: Monkeys posted 09 Jul 2004, 21:07 by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

We just added in a separate post an off-the-wall question that we ask authors as part of the Interview - one regarding monkeys and their application and naming. Scott just sent me his answer today and here's the link: [url:3eb66vrp]http://www.wotmania.net/fantasymessageboardshowmessage.asp?MessageID=99970[/url:3eb66vrp] Hope this makes people laugh...particularly those who have any animus toward a certain writer and a certain political leader ;) view post

I thought the first three monkeys were funny, and I actually didn't grasp any of the ones that followed. :evil: view post

Still hilarious :D I wonder how many authors you'll continue to be able to get to answer :lol: view post

Nah, I wonder if I can get Goodkind to reply :P As if. I have my standards and they preclude any interview invitations to someone whose beliefs and attitudes I find to be odious. view post

So I couldn't resist taking Scott's reply and turning it into the basis for a Quickpoll (probably only up for today, maybe tomorrow): [i:3lyaj6c9][b:3lyaj6c9]Which monkey is the better writer?[/b:3lyaj6c9] The one who recreated Hamlet One of those working in D. Adams' HGttG Terry Goodkind I don't get it[/i:3lyaj6c9] As of right now (9:33 AM CDT), the Terry Goodkind monkey is winning in a close race, with just over 32% of the votes cast. I wonder how many Goodkind fans will be mad at me for posting this.[/i] view post

Would someone mind doing a brief overview of Ayn Rand (perhaps in the philosphy section)? Not read any of her stuff because the small bits I did see seemed pretty laughable. Would be interesting to know just what it is she thinks she is trying to convey though. view post

I love Terry Goodkind(tm) jokes and this one is no exception. :) view post

My favorite Goodkind joke was the time that I wrote a Quickpoll where the choices for a more interesting read were between the next SoT book and The Illustrated Guide to Grass Growing. The Illustrated Guide won. view post
