    Please do read “Taking Things Seriously.” You won’t regret it! Highly anthropological. Also read “Great Gatsby,” but please note that Daisy is a Skrull.

    All right, so you are the Josh Glenn who edited abovementioned 75 OBJECTS? I’m soooo there! Will you sign it for me?

    I do not know what a Skrull is. Is that some kind of fictional outer-space alien?
