Daily Fools


Just a couple of Fools for the day

Lots of silliness out on the interwebs. So far, Innsmouth Free Press has reported that Cthulhu has converted to Christianity, and Aidan Moher has tweeted that George R.R. Martin’s final book in the A Song of Ice and Fire, A Dance with Dragons, will be split into two books, as well as delayed. That was closely followed by word from George’s own NotABlog that it would actually comprise FIVE volumes. Ahem. When you’ve picked yourself up off the floor, relax, it’s all good April Fool’s Day fun. The blog entries are pretty funny, give them a look if you have time.

  1. What does the Fool signify, in tarot mythology? I’m sure he doesn’t literally mean foolishness, any more than the Death card means the threat of an early demise. Is he like the wise fools who speak truth to power in Shakespeare, or like the tricksters in Native American mythology who move destiny along by instigating shenanigans?

  2. In this case, he literally can mean being foolish, although the card is more often read as going blindly into something, taking a leap of faith, starting a new journey, a babe in the woods, being fearless. As with any card in the Tarot, much will depend on the spread used (which position it falls in) and the surrounding cards. So whether it would have a positive or negative meaning would largely be determined by the question and the situation. There are other cards that can be almost comically literal.

  3. Ha! Yeah, nerd culture can be very… passionate about their obsessions 😉 You would think by now people would know not to believe much of anything they hear on April 1, but there are always a few…

    1. I’m sure the author is flattered, and those are certainly some avid fans, which I admire. I just wish their fandom came with a chill pill hahaha

  4. Hehehe, they do tend to get carried away. I’ve been watching HBOs GameOfThrones Twitter profile, tweeting from WonderCon today, all the pics of people sitting in the Iron Throne. Holy cow. I mean…WOW. 🙂 Even the actor Rainn Wilson (The Office)!

  5. Aidan Moher had me going for a minute with his tweet about two volumes, until I read the post 😉 I liked the line about “somehow figure out a way to make them give a damn about Brienne of Tarth. Seriously, no one likes him.” 😀
