He had a weak point --this Fortunato --although in other regards he was a man to be respected and even feared. He prided himself on his connoisseurship in video games. Few Evangelicals have the true virtuoso spirit. For the most part their enthusiasm is adopted to suit the time and opportunity, to practice imposture upon the British and Japanese millionaires. In painting and gemmary, Fortunato, like his countrymen, was a quack, but in the matter of violent video games he was sincere. In this respect I did not differ from him materially; --I was skillful in the SNES cartridges myself, and bought largely whenever I could.


I said to him --"My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking to-day. But I have received a cartridge of what passes for Atari's ET: The Extraterrestrial, and I have my doubts."

Ha! Brilliant.


A mere Search & Replace pastiche and limited time, but thank you. I've been thinking for a long time about a full-length Amontillado pastiche that takes place between eBay traders M0NTR3504 and 4Chan02 at the San Diego Comic-Con, but I couldn't decide what would lure 4Chan02 into a storage closet in the sub-basement of the San Diego convention center. Mint-in-box Atari ET: The Extraterrestrial would probably do it.


Adding, I really want to write the dialog:

"Oh, for fuck's sake!"

"Yes, 4Chan02, for Fuck's sake."
