Trifextra 53: Where the Wild Things Are

“This weekend we are venturing into uncharted territories once again.  This Trifextra isn’t so viagra prescription online much a writing challenge; it’s more of a reading challenge.  We want you to scour through your favorite pieces of literature and give us the best 33 words you can find. “

 

…so he gave up being king of where the wild things are.  But the wild things cried, “Oh, please don’t go–we’ll eat you up–we love you so!”  And Max said, “No!”

 

From Maurice Sendak‘s Where the Wild Things Are.  The dude scared and fascinated generations of children and spawned a pretty cool movie with an awesome soundtrack.

Hear it read, with some badass commentary, by Christopher Walken if you want a good laugh.
