Classic comic 483 - Fiction Rule of Thumb

If you're making up words by the barrel
For characters' food and apparel
I'll know in a jiffy
Your novel is whiffy
Unless your name's Tolkien or Carroll.

Original comic here.

Or Lear, of course!

  1. To know if a book's worth your time
    Just remember the following rhyme:
    "Every word fabricated
    is book worth abated."
    It's a rule that's entaritamime.
