wonder how many monks screwed up by not reading the copy first.

blowing bubbles of giggling somethingness and why-not-itude, a creative laxative, a provocateur of visual burps and farts (ie: until the end of 2019 as design department head at the creative circus, and frequent side-hustley designer of brandy designy stuff) – but also my every-other-time-o'-day approach. hopefully this stuff is easily sharable, lots funner than having to read a lot, and not a big investment of time. i hope you enjoy.

This is VERY funny. In all those old pictures from the Middle Ages, the monks at their desks, plume in hand, with their scrolls spread before them, look terribly serious and focussed. They couldn’t, we assume, have had lapses of attention, or slips of the pen, that resulted in any kind of error. I wonder whether scholars have found errors and, if so, any consistency in the type of error that would allow them to say, “Aha, this manuscript must have been transcribed by Xxxxius, because this error is characteristic of his work.”
that’s what i was imagining. poor guys.
Is that what my grad certificate is going to look like?
almost. i hope to spell your name correctly so there’s no use for the post-it note.
