Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Puppet-related quotes


There is much mystery shrouding the  enigmatic figure known to us as
Lemony Snicket.  Last fall I had the most unfortunate opportunity to
meet him in person and even perform a puppet show for him.
Unfortunately, Mr. Snicket met with a terrible accident on his way to
the event...something to do with a horribly enourmous
instead, I had the unfortunate opportunity to meet his
"representitive", Daniel Handler.  Mr. Handler was, in fact, extremely
enthusiastic (or as enthusiastic as one can be under the
giant-bug-biting circumstances) with regards to the puppet show!  He
even intimated that his grandmother used to make him shadow puppets.

I believe that passage from his book was probably written with tongue in cheek.

Of course, one never knows.
