Kurt Vonnegut

I have not written anything in a long time.  I came across this piece in a Wikipedia article about Kurt Vonnegut, and it made me laugh out loud.  I will share:

In the mid 1950s, Vonnegut worked very briefly for Sports Illustrated magazine, where he was assigned to write a piece on a racehorse that had jumped a fence and attempted to run away. After staring at the blank piece of paper on his typewriter all morning, he typed, "The horse jumped over the fucking fence," and left.[18]

The entire entry is here.
