Kevin Sweefarend is still remembering what he read from the book, "Snuf Blaffelaar visits Electopia", when he was trying to kill time whilst working as a shepherd. Quite a funny piece of writing...

THE LION AND THE RODENT, a tale not to author Jakstein's liking

Jakstein is sitting at his typewriter, all ready to tackle the task at hand. The task is of course to write a really good masterpiece, seeing as Jakstein would like to become a well-known, well paid writer.

He keeps tapping the keys on his typewriter, sculpting what might very well be a tale of inspiration, hope and pure goodness.

While is is typing, he keeps having daydreams of how today, this piece of writing right here is going to be the start of big things. What if this turns out to be the masterpiece that changes the world? Changes his life? Changes everything!

One thing he is certain about, is that inside him, there is a masterpiece hiding. This masterpiece must be unlocked and brought tot he surface somehow, so that it can open all doors for him that need to be opened in order to become a renowned author and writer.

After some time, Snuf Blaffelaar comes to sit on the couch behind him. Ah, thinks Jakstein, an audience has come to listen to what great writing sounds like.

Jakstein pulls typed paper from the typewriter and starts reading the book that he dedicates to Snuf Blaffelaar, his very, very best friend.

The story is called THE LION AND THE RODENT, and starts out very majestically with beautiful lions parading around. One of these lions is making his way towards his cave, blissfully unaware of the troubles that the day has decided to bestow upon him.

It is inside the cave that the trouble starts, when the devil himself creeps out of a hole... in the form of a mouse.

Our lion friend pulls up his socks and jumps on the nearest table! Then faints. Then falls and injures his spleen. Then he had to stay in bed for a few days.

Yep, it is right around here where Jakstein realizes the story has come off the tracks. He crumples up the paper and throws it in the bin.

Nope, that one wasn't the start of a big masterpiece that would open the door to riches and fame as an author.

At least one can say there was some progress or other. Now, dear reader, feast your eyes on the visual representation of this story!
