Ahehehehe. This senseless, meaningless essay -- randomly generated by a "Postmodernism Generator" -- reminds me of all that stuff I had to slog through in graduate Contemporary Criticism class: headache-inducing essays that had me reading and rereading a single paragraph till kingdom come, without any consolation of enlightenment. Gayatri Spivak and a certain Filipino Marxist poet who will remain nameless (and to some extent, Jacques Derrida) have to be the worst offenders.



And you know what's worse? When you finally write your papers for those damn classes, your writing actually begins to read like them. Scary.
