The Loony Lampoonist

The Left Thumb

"...arguably the greatest contemporary folktale on the subject of thumbs since Tom Thumb and Thumbelina, The Left Thumb is also a staggering achievement with an insight into the human condition of such profundity that surprises the reader..."

                                                                        New York Times Book Review.


The Left Thumb

I am a seducer, I attract women with words written. 

I fell in love with a woman, and in love cheated and loved another woman and another and another until the first love of my life found herself fallen out of love and in a mood for revenge, so that I may not succeed in seducing yet another woman, demanded of me the thumb of my writing right hand. 

I sliced the digit, my eyes conveying the pain of losing my God given gift, and offered it to her; she went away with a smile of satisfaction and unknowing that as her back was turned, I held my pen in my left hand and said with a smirk, "If only you knew the irony of this tale, Beatrice, that I happen to be ambidextrous."

About This Blog

The Loony Lampoonist serves to parody, spoof and satirize everything that needs to be parodied, spoofed and satirized. Due to the fictional nature of this electronic journal, any anecdotes appearing here ever so often that seem to be personal in nature, would suffer from the effects of conflicting personalities, the creation of fictional events and the inclusion of non existent characters who did not make it to the big league in the author's literary works. Thus, the Loony Lampoonist is also a purgatory for characters and ideas that have missed the limelight.
