  • The effectiveness of this title depends so much on how you pronounce the Don's name.

    In Australia my mother's generation (but not my mother for some reason) pronounced it "kwiksit". "Quik Quixote" pronounced this way would have quite a nice ring to it. But it's more likely nowadays to be pronounced in a vaguely Spanish way (kee-ho-tay), which spoils the effect in this instance.

    Which reminds me of King Tut

  • As seen here:

    QUIK QUIXOTE (I'm reading it, so you don't have to)

    By way of explanation, here's the introduction:


    This literary gem of the siglo d'oro,

    I have to say's been my bête noir, O

    spare your censure, gentle reader,

    I bet you haven't read it either.

    Let's make a deal. I'll save you time.

    Give you a crib in deathless rhyme.

    A Cliff Notes version of the Don,

    Cause Mick Cervantes does drone on.

    So tune back in, my little cupcakes,

    And watch this space for future updates.

    and a consumer warning:


    A warning will, I hope, here be excused.

    How much the reader -- you -- will be amused,

    Depends on how you view a poor confused

    Clown's antics. Are you laughing? Or bemused?

    If it's the latter, here's a quick suggestion.

    Just stop right now. Spare yourself indigestion.

    But if your favorite circus act's the clown,

    Read on, and I'll try not to let you down.
