Happy Fat Tuesday, literarians. In honor of this holiday, we hereby provide you with a link to John Kennedy O’Toole’s immortal classic, A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES, which is one of the funniest books of all-time.

Here are two great quotes that summarize the book’s lovely sarcasm:

“Apparently I lack some particular perversion which today’s employer is seeking.”

“The day before me is fraught with God knows what horrors.”
