On Blabbermouth

“A compelling tour-de-bore from a major new and big mouth.”
- Butt Seriously

A Letter to the Author

Dear Mr. Dasgupta,
First of all, Blabberwocky is somewhat disturbed at this turn of events. Your brilliantly-researched new expose of life in JUDE – using material gathered while dating all of five women to write a “book” (HO HO HO… ahem) is inspired. We at Blabberwocky could never have thought of this act of imaginative innovation – your expose, as we were saying, while being compelling (several readers have been compelled to keep pillows at hand while reading it), is guilty of an act of gross negligence. You have failed to acknowledge the seminal influence of Blabberwocky apropos of the nomenclature of your “book” (HO HO HO… ahem). We at Blabberwocky hereby inform you that we have as yet received no royalty for your use of the term “blabber” in your title. According to our calculations, you owe us exactly 25p – @ 1% royalty on every title sold, you seem to have sold precisely one title, at the discounted rate of Rs. 25. (Between us, while this shows a great love for your fellow human being, it might not be such a sound business proposition). We would also be obliged if you could forward us the name and address of this carbon-based biped of reduced noetic abilities that bought your “book” (HO HO HO… ahem) as we are looking to test our newly-developed nerve gas on somebody stupid enough to let us.
We shall be grateful for an early receipt.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

P.S. A minor suggestion, if you will? We recommend you remain anonymous if a second edition comes out. Or perhaps a pseudonym? Egotistical Haverer seems apt to us, but of course it’s your call.

(This is the latest Blab on the Board)

A> Blabbermouth is not, i reapeat NOT a person. It is an expose'.
B> Ladies and Gents of the board (bored?) of Blabberwocky, I beg to disagree with you on the matter of me pinching the name. SUrely you dont own the rights on ALL words beginning with 'blabber?'
C> LAstly, I owe you more than 25P, because (without or without your knowledge) I have sold more copies than you think.
D> Cheerio!

But all good things must come to an end. Sad, but true.
