HP Lovecraft as a Whitman's Sampler Copywriter

April 30, 2009

I tweeted this yesterday. It’s still making me laugh. From McSweeney’s, “Selections from HP Lovecraft’s Brief Tenure as a Whitman’s Sampler Copywriter.” I can’t even pick a favorite, although I’m especially partial to this one:

Toffee Nugget

Few men dare ask the question “What is toffee, exactly?” All those who have investigated this substance are now either dead or insane.

Speaking of Lovecraft, we recently watched the silent film, The Call of Cthulu. It’s quite entertaining.
