FOR THE LOVE OF FALKOR: Hide Your Unsightly E-Reader Between the Covers of the Classic Kid's Book 'The Neverending Story'
I've only punched one person in the face while sober and that is because the jackass had the audacity to criticize the great Neverending Story. As far as I'm concerned, he had it coming (although the principal at my elementary school didn't feel the same way).
The fight started over the movie. Not because one of us liked it and the other didn't (although there was that), but because I said it was a book first (which my dad brought back after a visit to Switzerland in 1983) and the douche said I was a liar and that no one would write a book that stupid.
Needless to say, my fist corrected him quite ferociously.
Anyway, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende has always been one of my favorite fantasy novels and the fact that someone has made it into an e-reader cover is testament to a story that is so fucking amazing that I would be willing to smash in the skull of another human being willingly AT THE AGE OF TEN.
And yes, putting my electronic gizmo that is filled with science fiction, horror stories and porn in inside it seems like a fitting tribute.
