Spamusement in Literature

Postby jvcc » Sat Jan 19, 2013 10:41 pm

So, I was reading Oscar Wilde's essay "The Decay of Lying: An Observation," when I observed something. Wilde says of the author Mr. James Payn that "[h]e hunts down the obvious with the enthusiasm of a short-sighted detective." That description reminded me of a beloved Spamusement character, but I can't quite place my finger on who it is...

The indefatigable Murph Mccollum?
The inscrutable Amaizing Lee?
The enthusiastically oblivious Hearing Impaired Man?
The swordsman who is eternally challenging Cabinet Sanchez? :n/

TOTAL HIJACK

I wonder how hard it would be to create a "meme maker" that takes a few classic spamusements and allows you to add a caption, like jvcc's picture in the OP there. Hmmm ... :| (being totally thoughtful)

Doesn't Slydon have something kind of like that on his webcomic site?
