That was an excellent comparison.
Also, I forgot about Telemachus Sneezed. I'll have to reread Illuminatus again when I feel up to it. Actually it might be fun to read now that I've been here for over 2 years. Different perspective on it. Illuminatus made me go, "Oh, yeah, Discordianism. I remember that." Combine that with unrelated follow the links and end up finding about EggGASM about a few months or so after reading it, and then you got someone in their living room thinking, "Erm... Nephew Twiddleton works as a screen name, I think."
