TenTree: Most Surreal Places on Earth

“So she went into the garden to cut a cabbage leaf to make an apple pie; and at the same time a great she-bear, coming up the street, pops its head into the shop — What! No soap? So he died and she very imprudently married the barber and there were present the Picninnies, and the Joblillies, and the Garyulies, and the grand Panjandrum himself, with the little round button at top and they all fell to playing the game of catch-as-catch-can, till the gunpowder ran out at the heels of their boots.” — Samuel Foote

In his anecdotage, he began to believe, for the first time
in stuporstitions. He had never been aglustomed to accept these tales
at their valuetations, but the boulder he grew, the more affordlorned he was
destined to beglum. Some thought that this man
was sacrifarcing too much, misaching
for a place in the unihearse he could cull
his pepfuge

Unfortunately, most were only interested in banctuaries
and self-ladderfying pursuits. These pee-pulls
thought they stood under nothing and understood everything
but in fact only pseudolized it all. The old man, howclever,

Ricardo Alvarez

The old man deprided it would benesuit him to ungavel this mystery
by reactually leaving his banerhood to search
for his pepfuge. He had distill
been searching these passé years, until a week aflow,
when smudgeonly, the old man found
what he seamed to be
nooking for, and the unihearse no longer disurned him
aflung any of the others, and inheed,
could only numbtux the slydea of a nothim

Josh Keyes

And this was his own
way of making certain The Machinagician
would never fool him again
