I'd love to read this short story but it needs a password to do so. How do I get a password?

I just tried "spacefuck"
and it's not that. So.
Only an infinite number more to try.

At first I thought this was a post designed to see whether the moderators would pick up some kind of TOS violation. Then, I read the article. What an odd, grotesque, and hit-me-in-the-gonads piece of fiction. Pseudo-pod: please. Do not narrate this story.   :-[

I'm a stand-up philosopher until 2024. Then, I move onto my next gig. I'm a gentleman forester and farmer. I also enjoy jumping into Lake Huron and panicking the fish.

Yeah, it’s not one of Vonnegut’s strongest pieces.  Or one of the strongest pieces in Again, Dangerous Visions.  I suspect it wouldn’t have been published if Vonnegut’s name hadn’t been on it.

Will read for title alone.
