Like Gukira, I don't usually do memes, but this one nabbed me.
1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open it to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Copy it onto your blog/journal along with these instructions
"Also, such a discussion will be diagnostic rather than hortatory: it will be more concerned with how effects are produced than with what effects should be produced."
[Kenneth Burke, Counter-Statement, 1968 (1931); emphasis in original]
Just for kicks here's the same exercise performed on my own book for a me-meme (3me): "This practice was mostly a hygienic measure, as oil served to keep dirt, sand, and dust out of the pores." Man, that could use some airbrush action, though it's kind of funny if imagined as a followup sentence to Burke's. Yah, I don't recommend the me-meme.
