  • #2026 submitted 11/25/2010: golem, shill, risible, consanguineous

    The "consaguineous" situation put by the "golem brothers", creations of the same creator, was nothing but metaphor to the creator, a great wizard, and an exaggeration from the perspective of the golems, the wizard thought; yet they did call it "consanguineous", though they were stone and magic and had nothing of flesh and blood, which was secretly risible for the wizard and it constantly made him hide his grin -- note that there was one time, however, in which the wizard did not manage to hold his laughter: he made a show out of it, luring the golems as the crook lures someone in his shill, so they, the golems, would think anything but cruelty and cynicism from the wizard, the great magician . . .
