Orlando’s Last Prank

2

June 30, 2011 by Jen

Yesterday, a friend came over to help with the packing as I get ready to move. My bound thesis was sitting on my desk, so she picked up a copy to glance at it. When I looked over her shoulder, something funny had come over Orlando.

First I saw this:


Yep, *cringe* it’s Orlando.

Then this:


Wait, what?

Then this:


Title: The Thesis Jen Wishes She Had Written.

Although Orlando may have shrunk 23 pages in length, my illustrious thesis now has a section called: “Wandering Monster Tables.” Brilliant!


If only I had gotten this copy before my defense. This could completely revolutionize the teaching of Shakespeare.

All the same, I can’t help wondering if someone, somewhere, is now desperately trying to find the Foucauldian Heterotopia on level 5 of Labyrinth Lord, all the while wondering why the character “Pericles” has yet to show up…

Well played, Orlando. Well played.

    Um, I think you can get a reprint of your real one. That's a pretty big mistake. Who gets a thesis in gaming?

    The company prints books as well as theses, but still… :-PI'm torn, because I'd like to keep the misprint, but would probably have to send it back to get a free reprint.
