Of course my brain kept thinking “make a punchline about Watchmen, make a punchline about Watchmen.” But I am much better behaved than that. Most of the time. Okay, some of the time.

    Well… any joke using that scene and lineswould be rather juvenile.
    Mass-murdering narcissist twit Ozymandias: “I did the right thing, didn’t I? It allworked out in the end.”
    Naked Smurf-man: “In the end? Ask you proctologist.”

    I’ve quoted Alan Moore here before, so I have to celebrate the inclusion.

    It helps to remember that our human concept of story demands a beginning, a conflict, a resolution, and an end. In life few things are so neatly packaged, though we are damn’ good at making things sound like they were intended to be stories from the beginning. And some just haven’t concluded yet.

    I have only one cornball observation to make on this score. It’s been claimed to me that people who do not accept the endings handed to them go on to find a different, better way to conclude their own story. This wisdom is typically delivered as the impertinent slogan, “Winners never quit.” But as long as you can find something else to try, something else to do, some other way of getting home, you’re not stopped. Just presented a new problem to figure out before you get going again. So I tell myself. And keep going.
