About the Story

This was written at pretty much the very last second for ClubFloyd's 2011 Thanksgiving Speed-IF session, inspired by Christos Dimitrakakis, who said, "Let's play You Are A Turkey!" during a ClubFloyd session while we were waiting for the 'real' games to be uploaded. So before you go blaming the author, consider first blaming Christos Dimitrakakis.

Either extreme minimalism, or there's something I'm not thinking of, March 31, 2018

...but based on the ABOUT text, probably the former.

Not much else to say. I'm glad it exists.
