The Funniest Short Story We've Seen in Ages

Illustration for article titled The Funniest Short Story Weve Seen in Ages

Over at The Wanderer's Library, there's a story that's sort of a clever spin on the tradition of creation myths and "how the leopard got its spots." Except that this one is about Capacitor, Insulator and Grandmother Triode. And Slide Rule Demon! The line "Ever since that day, Capacitor has been unable to conduct electric current, because he is empty inside" is never going to stop making me giggle. Seriously, just go read "How Grandmother Triode Stole Binary from the Sun" by Jack Manganese. It's short, and might make your day. [Thanks Danny!]
