Steven Brust: “A masterful storyteller of contagious glee and self-deprecating badassery” —Skyler White

Texas Wisdom #45


One day a student came to see Billy-Bob Gautama, and found him, beaming, staring at something in his hand.  “Look,” said Billy-Bob.  “I just found this.  It is a piece of the truth.”  “The truth?” said the student.  “Looks to me like a carburetor from a ’68 Chev.”  “And that is just what it is!  You see?  The truth!”

  1. I think someones left the cap off the acetone again.

  2. This is a random question for skzb. Is that you playing the banjo in “Little Beggarman?” It’s great stuff.

    Is Goat telling us the truth is as simple as what’s right in front of our eyes? If so, I’m turning off Fox News.

  3. Yep, that’s me; thanks kindly.

    Sorry, I can never figure out what Goat is on about.
