This is just exciting beyond description. I believe that I have invented a literary form that can quite possibly become a popular instrument in the American writer's repertoire.

I am calling it the "fessay", and I have created a separate blog of my own for the purpose of exploring and expanding this new concept.

Please go there and have a look. The very first fessay deals with the Terri Schiavo case. And if you like it, PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!!!!! If it catches on, you will have witnessed history in the offing. Thanks, folks.

Well, Mr. Homnick, this is an interesting twist on what one might find at The Onion or Scrappleface. I'm sure your fellow language mavens will happily consume fessays till sated. William Safire is coming by tomorrow at 3.

Buchwald used to do what you are now calling "fessays" occasionally.

Jay D. Homnick said...

Yes, David, to be perfectly honest I did recall that.
