STEVEN WAS PERPLEXED... | Doc Austin

What can I say? Steven's a funny guy.
Charlie Brown has nothing on the mediocrity of his secret brother
Steven. The myth of Steven as Charlie Brown's brother is only now seeing
acceptance among those in the Peanuts community. Yes, Steven Brown,
chained in the basement, occasionally getting scraps of food and a
broken toy dropped to him via the laundry chute. The one shaft of light
coming in through a hole in the wall is his only glimpse of the outside,
where Charlie gets fooled by Lucy again in the backyard with the
football. Even to Steven, the joke was unfunny after about the 5th time
Lucy yanked away Charlie's hope.

A creeping sense of dread prevails as I look onto this
image. The feeling is similar to the one I experienced a fortnight ago
when I awoke in my chambers to find that every last physical object
(including my own person) had been rotated exactly 3 feet in a clockwise
direction. The horror, the horror.....
