This is the first meme I’ve done here, I believe, but since it echoes a divining game Paul and I played at a wedding up in Maine, or somewhere, and which managed to eerily predict the near future (though Paul did not make love to the corpse of a cop, nor did I marry a fifteen year old), I thought I’d give this one a shot:
