Parody of a great children's book 

I don't usually "borrow" entire blog entries, but this entry at the Volokh Conspiracy couldn't be shortened. Besides, most of the post itself is a block quote from another post...

Click here to read the whole parody, as written by By William Akoi, Chris Condrat, and Ryan Merril-Johnson.

As Eugene Volokh notes, this will only be funny if you've read a certain children's book.

But for us, very funny: Alexander the Great and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day. The opening paragraphs:
I left the battle with blood in my helmet and now there’s blood in my hair and when I got out of my armor this afternoon I tripped on a dead solder and by mistake I dropped my sword in the catapult while the thing was launching and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good very bad day.

At dinner Aristotle found a fat juicy rabbit in the tall overgrown grass and Demetrius found a striking young buck in the tall overgrown grass but in my tall overgrown grass all I found was tall overgrown grass.

I think I’ll move to Carthage.

I have been visiting various blogs for my term papers writing research. I have found your blog to be quite useful. Keep updating your blog with valuable information... Regards
