The rule is only 20 words.
Naturally, I had to put my own hifalutin twist on it, which is not exactly in the spirit of the thing while yet sticking to the 20-word rule. (This could explain that there is some genetic reason behind my 8-year-old nephew's inclination to always add some unnecessary complication to things in an effort to be funny. He usually succeeds. Me, I wish I was as funny and creative as he is.)
Here is my take on the year:
- 2001: A Shakespearian tragedy
At home, it's double, double toilet trouble;
At work, job satisfaction's just about burst its bubble.
