Here’s a thing. It’s an idea I picked up from Facebook. (Not a meme. There are no memes.)
Grab the closest book to you.
Turn to page 52.
Post the 5th sentence. Copy these instructions along with the post.
This actually turned out to be impossible to fulfill. The nearest book at hand was Property is Theft! A Pierre-Joseph Proudhon Anthology. But p. 52 of that book doesn’t have 5 sentences. (It just has a short paragraph closing out the Introduction of the anthology.) The second nearest book was John Stoltenberg’s Refusing to be a Man: Essays on Sex and Justice; but p. 52 of my edition is the blank back of a section title page. I finally got a book that could possibly meet the requirements of the game with the third-nearest; so, by way of a game attempt, here’s the right sentence from the right page of Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street, by Michael Davis (Viking, 2008). This is from a chapter which is mostly following some folks working on Captain Kangaroo at CBS, who would later end up as key figures in the Children’s Television Workshop. Anyway, sentence 5 is the especially enlightening record of the fact that:
[Jon] Stone worked for two game shows that, as he recalled, bent the rules.
–Michael Davis (2008), Street Gang, p. 52.
Well, so have I, just now, I suppose.
