"Blog to blog,
Bog to glog,
Grog to Smaug!"
Nimmy Chacko was kind enough to write a lovely Scholastic blog entry on This Book Makes No Sense, and you'll find included a little online interview, where I expound on nonsense, giraffes, nonsense giraffes, Alan Watts as a neo-giraffe, Samuel Taylor Coleraffe, Xanadu and Olivia Newton-Jiraffe, and other things related to nonsense theory and giraffes (oddly, without any reference to Dr. and Mr. Doris Haggis-On-Whey's brilliant nonsensical Giraffes? Giraffes!).
Why Mr. Sputum?--I can't rightly say. He appeared in the Indian Express newspaper (I think) during my trip... and he has been wanting to contribute to the blog ever since...
