Today's Idiocracy Moment

In a bid to keep the writing every bit as twee as the Journal Star, the Omaha World Herald has re-hired Rainbow.

My very favourite Rainbow article ever was her review of the limited edition State Colour Crayola crayons. If only she'd managed to work in something about football, and discovering facial hair sprouting from her chin, it could have won a Pulitzer.

As Artaud said after getting something like the 500th electric shock to his head:

"Oh my fucking god, my head hurts. My fucking head hurts." Except he would have said it in French, if at all.

Rainbow Rowell. Merde.
