animation passion

This is Dr. Zork, and tho I would like to tell you about the rise and descent of the excellent jazz note, I must instead write to you about the animation fantasy world of the fictional animator John Akre, who finds himself at work on his animated feature film Wargoon Flishe.

Last night he displayed to himself his great passion for animation. After a long taxing day at work and then dinner out with his girlfriend and then a walk thru an art show of gigantic people photographs, he retreated to his computer to put together parts of animation of a new scene.

He moved steadily down page 36 of his script. He animated the meeting of Wargoon and Stripesmaybe in the theatre as the credits roll. The credits were that very page of the book of which he animated.

Then he moved his characters to a restaurant, where candles burned. This was a very simple set, with some note card animations and a square for a table. He began last night a dialogue scene across the table, and he will most likely finish up that scene today.

And now, let us leave behind a bit of his passion and I shall now endow you with the Pome of the Day Project.

the deep fat fried employment act
is sitting on the table
the first section is written in cartoon
the last part like a fable

"the deep fat fried employment act
is very sorely needed,"
the governor signed it as he said,
"and i hope it will be heeded."

if you must bring your child to work
the act says, you must try
to keep it out of the hot oil
or baby will surely fry

despite its extent, it has liimitations
common in legislation so toiling
for example, there are no protections enforced
when swim teams compete in oil boiling.

Writtin in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
