Mis-spelling  -  by cls

The lack of education becomes widespread. Whether among the young people who take examinations or among the old folk who display it in the street.
Everybody knows that in French the noun "herbe" (grass, weed) is feminine. But it is not a reason to write its possessive "ma". Because of the hiatus, we have to write "mon". Everybody knows it...
Moreover what is below is a plant, not a weed!


ma herbe

Laughter  -  by cls

These three trees laughed*. They prove it.
For nothing...
For a trinket: because they are in front of Bagatelle**!


(In French : * ri=laughted ** bagatelle=trinket. Jokes. One more time. Sigh!)

Lot [1]  -  by cls
Our century glorifies more and more the physical health, the vigour of the muscle, the elasticity of the skin and seems to abandon a little the intellectual health and the spiritual plasticity. This small chronicle is an attempt of rebalancing the situation. It studies the possibility of improve the mind - to read - in a devolved place in its totality to the body and its hygiene, a place where it stabilizes by getting rid of superfluous solids and fluids. In a word, it is the study of the constitution of a lot, a library of toilets. The tranquillity of the place and the sat position facilitate the intellectual concentration. Nothing remains to give to the place, after the ease and the convenience, an easy access to the enrichment. One or two shelves and some well chosen books will allow it easily. We shall find, in the bibliography which follows, our choices on the matter. This bibliography proposes a very precise theme; it is not exhaustive, naturally. It evolves according to finds.

Good Taste  -  by cls

carton de réexpédition

Among the pleasures and the cross (the two sides of the same coin) of the publisher we find the reception of not sought manuscripts by mail way (now - technological progress obliges - they also arrive by e-mail).
Everybody knows that, in the matter, the worst mostly border on... the worst. Exceeded, the publisher is transformed into an old grumbling bear. Then he reacts as a consequence and sends back the incriminated manuscripts with a sybillin cardboard in place of report, like that of Deleatur: "Pierre Laurendeau loathes the poetry!" (Printed by myself for his friend and colleague) or, with a good consummate taste, like that one we find above for the Éditions du Fourneau.
Self-criticism: the typography of this cardboard is more than questionable but its documentary interest (and history) is evident.
