Everyone's Favorite Part So Far

Is Humpty Dumpty!

And I think it does capture the very strange ambivalence or contradiction that is in many fairy tales and stories in the Bible (it's a running theme throughout the novel). On the one hand, Humpty is one horrible tale of violent death, with no hope at the end. And yet, everytime I'd ever seen Humpty in one of those Storybook Land places when I was little, he was always on top of the wall, intact, smiling! He didn't care he was going to die!

LOL! Humpty sitting on the wall for the children of amusement parks is like Jesus offering himself to the cross.
