PALEOFUTURE "CHUCKLES" #1: PERSHING F. GOOSEBERRY (The Third, My Dear Boy)

Matt Novak, the wunderkind behind the nerd-tastic Paleofuture blog, recently asked me to write a piece for a new section of his blog entitled "Chuckles."

I took him up on the offer and thus Pershing F. Gooseberry III was born. Pershing was an infamous hedonist who wrote lascivious, opium-clouded articles for the early-20th Century men's magazine The Merry Fornicator.

If this experiment is popular with his readers, I will dutifully unearth more Gooseberry articles from my collection of dusty old copies of The Merry Fornicator. Or maybe I'll write something completely different for the site.

Matt is still tinkering with the section, but I have assured him that I will contribute shit to the "Chuckles" page whatever direction it goes.

Whenever some shit goes up over there, I'll give you a heads-up here at the home-base, the safe-haven, the dank-and-dingy basement that is Nerd of Noir.

Loved the article. Please, do unearth more such tales from the Merry fornicator.

I wish I, too, had a back-catalogue of Pershing F. Gooseberry III's writings to unearth...
