- "The Forever War" By Joe Haldeman:
Mandella - I've joined the army. Watch my career.
(Mendella flies around and loses everything.)
Mandella - It was all for nothing.
- "Dune" By Frank Herbert:
Frank Herbert - I'm lots smarter than you are. I challenge you to understand even one of my paragraphs!
Reader - Gee, Frank Herbert is smart. I can't even find the plot.
There are uber-digest versions of works from fantasy and science fiction, bedtime stories, and classics.
I wouldn't recommend this for die-hard, humor-free fans on any of the authors (or genres): but if that's not you, you might get a chuckle or two out of this.
