Sick on a Sunday

Genre stabbing

Posted in Uncategorized by jamie on May 26, 2010

I love it when writers speak to the audience through a character and poke fun at the tired conventions of their own genre. Like in this little diddy:

Woman in alley: Thank you! Thank you! That thing was going to kill me!
Spike: Well, what did you expect? Out alone in this neighborhood – I’ve got half a mind to kill you myself, you half-wit.
Woman in alley: What?
Spike: I mean honestly, what kind of retard wears heels like that in a dark alley? Take two steps and break your bloody ankle.
Woman in alley: [annoyed] I was just trying to get home.
Spike: Well, get a cab, you moron, and on the way, if a stranger offers you candy, don’t get in the van!
