Fahrenheit 451 Again & Again
Montag was aghast! All his books were to be burned.
"Please, Captain, no! Don't destroy my books!"
"Is this your favorite book?" sneered the Captain. "It's got to be burned with all the others!"
Montag lunged at the Captain to grab the book, but the Captain snatched it away and flung it on the fire!
"Curse you!" cried Montag. All that he had loved, all that he prized, all that had ever warmed his soul was now a mass of flaming cinders.
"But why, Captain? Why?!!"
"Montag, you know burned books are better for barbecue than charcoal briquettes."
"But my favorite book!"
"It's just The Jennifer Lawrence Nudie Collection. It's all over the Internet anyway."
This is my third parody of Fahrenheit 451, which means two things: (1) this is a heckuva good novel to parody, and (2) I better read some more novels. My favorite of the three parodies is here, the other one is here. I wouldn't waste my time with either.
While there may not be quite 451 Friday Fictioneers yet, there are plenty of Fictioneers offering takes on the above picture prompt if you click here. I'd recommend you do it.
Oh, no, now they want to burn this post! Pretty good idea, I'd say.
