280 Dog Years


The Holy Grail Press is dedicated to promoting work that standard publishers... you know, those with standards, might be reluctant to publish, which pretty much leaves poetry.  And let's face it:  No one publishes poetry.  So in the end, we’re left with a lot of free time.



Word of the Every So Often

wonk:  (noun)  often used derogatorily, a person who takes a particularly specialized interest in the minute details of a field of study, especially with politics.  You want to know about the influence of Russian immigrants on the passage of the infrastructure bill?  Then just ask Bill, he's our resident wonk.

The History of the Future:  Gluten-Free Gluten

On March 20, 2028, Franz Josef Von Spekelburgenstein was awarded a patent for Gluten-Free Gluten, a substance that he marketed under the trade name “Taste Again.”  Said Von Spekelburgenstein, “It’s a gluten-free gluten that allows you to eat everything with gluten in it, but still be smug about it.”

Less than a year later, on February 7, 2029, Gluten-Free Gluten-Free was introduced for those “who wanted to be sure.”  Sold primarily in health food stores under various trade names, it was said to neutralize any of the reported side-effects from Gluten-Free Gluten that might’ve inadvertently been introduced into your food.

This was soon followed by Freer Gluten-Free Gluten,  Freer Than Free Gluten-Free Gluten, and Free the Gluten Five.

However, by the end of the fourth quarter in 2032, it was reported that every company that had been marketing gluten and gluten-free additives had gone out of business.  As well, demand for all gluten-free substances had all but disappeared.  Said one consumer, “It’s not that we still don’t care.  We just got confused.”

If people could lick their own ass, we would.  Then there would be debates whether we should.  There would be those who would argue that we are healthier when we do.  That it is natural.  That not licking our own ass actually causes diseases.  And those people would be convinced that they are right, and still be clueless why nobody wants to kiss them.
