Your mailman is a pedo.

>> No.12388378

I don't think she was. I think everyone else was.

Usually, that's a clue that we're dealing with an unreliable narrator, but not here.

Not Bill Murray is obviously Pynchon, because nobody could give enough of a shit about The Farting of Lit 49 to pick up on that gay Badger reference

Someone made the following comments:

>Maas, the surname, is derived from Thomas. The Biblical Thomas did what again?
>Maas is also the name of a river. A river that traces the boundary of the Holy Roman Empire. Gee whiz, Mr Misprint had an empire... Mz Maas ends up doing wha?

Which, if you tie this together and your head doesn't explode, should make a lot more sense.
