My Own Private Ulysses: April Fools Verses Sylvia “Bring It On” Beach
Without her, Ulysses would not have been born.
She wrenched the plump book from the most megalomaniacal mother ever. Poor Mina Purefoy’s “three days bad” labor was smooth as a fresh pint of Guinness in comparison.
A British racing rag, The Sporting Times, published an early review under the headline "The Scandal of Ulysses." This piffle was written by some humorless hump cowering behind the Twitter troll handle “Aramis.” Less musketeer than party-poopeteer.
The stick in mud with a stick up his ass tweeted the Modernist masterpiece was written by a “perverted lunatic who has made a speciality of the literature of the latrine.”
Sylvia hung a huge advertising placard of the pony paper’s April 1st issue above the desk in her indispensable bookshop for all to see. Joke’s on you, Killjoyamis.
Give ‘em Hades, Sylvia!
