Nancy was the first lesbian that I really felt I knew well.

Please tell me this is a sign that The Stranger has found a replacement for Underworld.

Not so much a hoax, but certainly fiction. It ran in Hermenaut. Here are the relevant source notes:

Sam? Ernie Fucking Bushmiller called Samuel Beckett SAM?!
We used to read Nancy just to see if it would ever be funny. It never was. These "crackerjack predicaments" could only have helped.

Please update this post.
It is things like this that make me turn back to the New York Times as my preferred news source.

@7: You're joking, right?

All good news is a hoax.

#8 Yeah, I am joking. I mostly am wavering towards the Tacoma News Tribune's site. I hear that they spell 'lede' in the current, non anachronistic, non "let's pretend we live in the 19th century" form of lead.

I was with it until it mentioned putting the kids in garbage cans. Then the light went on.
I should send you a copy of the play I wrote which was a parody of "Happy Days" by Beckett, only featuring Billy and Dolly from "The Family Circus".

If only Beckett had lived long enough to form a friendship with Gary Larson of The Far Side. Maybe he would have written a play about cows...

Hell, I believed it.
You do know that Beckett really did write & direct a film starring Buster Keaton? And that Salvador Dali really did write a film script for the Marx Brothers? It's not such a leap to believe that Beckett and Bushmiller collaborated.

A whole series of Nancy & Sluggo porn would be righteous, esp if Sluggo were plowing Nancy doggy style and repeatedly smacking her ass.

Don't feel bad Paul. I fall for this joke about once a year.
