The Fatberg Saga, By John Scalzi and Paul Sabourin

It goes a little something like this.

I’m pretty sure this will be my next Hugo-nominated work.

By John Scalzi

I enjoy pie.

Since I firmly believe that nitpicking technical details is the highest form of nerd praise:

“Planck’s time” isn’t typically how the term is used. Planck time is a unit of time, so while it makes sense to say “A Planck time after the big bang…,” saying “At Planck’s time, a fraction of a second post big bang…” reads a little like “At second, a fraction of a minute post flushing…”.

Please take this to indicate the extreme pleasure with which I read the above exchange.



No. Obese-Wan lied. Your mother… was seduced by the Fat Side of the Force. She ceased to be Mother and “became” Fatberg. When that happened, the good woman who was your mother was destroyed. So what Obese-Wan told you was true… from a certain point of view.

I really don’t recommend reading the linked article while eating.

Unless you have a toothbrush handy. But even then don’t do it.

(Yes, I have either a weak stomach or an overactive imagination, but either way, I admire your ability to make funny out of yuck).

I still think it’s a crying shame that you (perhaps collaborating with Paul, Storm, Wil Wheaton, or the like) have not actually written a ridiculous movie for SyFy. Perhaps they have offered you one, but are concerned that the Scalzi Brand would be tarnished by the Ouroboros of intentionally/unintentionally funny that is the stock and trade of SyFy movies. Perhaps you have already written one under a pseud? Nah; you’d take credit for “Sharknado” if you’d been involved.

I’m sure there’s an absolutely hilarious Titanic joke to be made here but I’m too nauseated to think one up. I’d like to keep that fettuccine alfredo I just ate flowing in the right direction. Ugh.

Anyway, you clearly had him on the ropes with the Bhagavad Gita thing. He had no choice but to go after Mamma Scalzi (hero of the Fatberg Wars, may she rest in peace). XD

I think you missed the big news, Discovery Channel in its continuing attempts to elevate the world of science and learning is going to kick off Fatberg Week with a “documentary” including “found footage” of a 15 tonne fatberg attack on a fishing boat
