Author Elaine Lobl Konigsburg died at the spry age of 83.

You’d never think it by looking at her, but this woman had the world’s largest collection of man-on-animal porn. Narrowly edging out Carl Shepherd.

Known as E. L. Konigsburg (because it’s not cool to buy a book written by a chick), she wrote children’s and young adult novels like From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and The View from Saturday.

She usually wrote about important themes for children, like in The Dangers of Being an Alter Boy, The Day I Swallowed a Battery and Uncle Touchy’s Little Secret.

But she also kept things light when she wanted to, like in Lucky McLuckerson: The Luckiest Leprechaun in the Whole Wide Potato Famine, Jame Gumb’s Basement of Fun and the classic series Ziggy and Mertlemer’s Zany Chemotehapy Adventures.

But she will be best known for such heartwarming yarns as The Day I Shot Puddles, The Fate of the Unadopted Pets and Daddy’s Meth-Makin’ Machine.

This hit goes to: Gianna!  Yes, the “Company” Director (playing at LSC from May 2nd through the 5th!  Admission by Donation!) joins the At-Least-We-Have-As-Many-Points-As-Bean Club and is only 30 points shy of tiple digits!

I reamain at 10 points, unabated.

Happy pooling,

SPMI
