Lamont and Dude Ponder Profundities

“Hey Lamont! Did you see this?”

“What, Dude?”

“They reviewed your new book, ‘The Boomerang Effect’.”

“That’s to be expected.”

“Do you want to hear what they said?”

“You’re going to tell me, right?”

“They said it’s ‘profound’.”

“Of course it’s profound. How could it not be profound? The thing is, we — you and me, Dude, we appear to be great thinkers but all we are is a couple of guys with good memories.”

“Profoundly good, would you say?”

“Yeah, especially those bits when we were lantern fish and coelacanths.”

“Those were good times, dark, but good.”

Here’s a great song by Lucio Dalla.

 

About Lamont and Dude: Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a couple of years ago. They’re old, OLD friends who somehow recognize each other and have memories over several incarnations. If you like this, and want to read more, just search “Lamont and Dude”

  1. I would get very worried if anyone called me or something I wrote profound. It’s like (as Garry says) getting a “lifetime achievement” award. You just know it means you’re out of work again.
