Take Seriously At Your Peril: An Imaginary Kingdom Yesterday

And now IMAGINARY NEWS: In a dramatic development, a well-known imaginary man walked out on an imaginary kingdom yesterday, abandoning his imaginary friends and enemies.

For many years, the man - known as 9991bookS because he likes to keep an extensive library - had been a prominent citizen of the imaginary kingdom - known as The Spoof! because it is entirely made-up and silly and not at all real.

The man had written lots of amusing stories and articles, promulgated many highly-amusing promulgations, and generally kept his imaginary friends and enemies entertained. He was not the only denizen of the imaginary kingdom to entertain. Far from it. But he was one of the best entertainers, and also one of the elders of the kingdom, who usually knew what was going on and helped to run things.

The effect of all this was to help all the imaginary people to enjoy the imaginary nature of the kingdom and of themselves. This was all a lot of fun and a relief from the struggles of the actual real world that exists outside of the enchanted imaginary kingdom.

The problems began when this imaginary man, along with a few other key citizens of the silly imaginary world, began to imagine that the imaginary kingdom and their own imaginary personalities were really real and not imaginary.

Some of the things that the man began to promulgate in the public promulgating place began to be rather serious and began to seem rather personal. It was somewhat disturbing because something had clearly gone wrong but nobody could tell what it was because the language of the imaginary kingdom did not permit the expression of truth in a direct or personal fashion.

It was like watching somebody cry for help in a foreign language.

When the man began to attack the very nature of the imaginary kingdom and his own imaginary character, it was clearly time that something was done.

The something that was done was that the imaginary man said he was leaving and then walked out of the imaginary kingdom, pausing only to have an imaginary cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit with two other imaginary men who were fed up of pretending to be imaginary and showing off with stuck-up clever making things up type behaviour.

And then he was off, striding indignantly through the imaginary arboreal dell and crossing the waving fields of imaginary alfalfa towards a better world.
