It's one of my all-time favorite books. It's called Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn. He describes it as an "progressively lipogrammatic epistolary fable." It is written in the form of letters between the citizens of the fictional island of Nollop, an independent nation off the coast of South Carolina and home of Nevin Nollop, who invented the phrase "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." That phrase is written in tiles over a statue of Nollop in their town square, and when one night a storm causes one of the tiles to fall, the council decides that it's a sign from Nollop that they are no longer allowed to use that letter, in speech or writing, on pain of progressive punishments including public beating and up to banishment. Then another tile falls. Then another. The citizens, who are all very attached to their words and writing, mount a campaign to come up with a phrase that uses all 26 letters but is shorter than Nollop's, thus proving that he was not divine and negating all the edicts. Because the novel is told in the form of letters the citizens write, and this is the genius part...the author must also stop using the letters as they fall. So the book gradually stops using letters until at one point I think they're down to just five. The resolution literally made me get up and dance around the room. It's clever, creative, and a not-really-veiled-at-all parable about monotheistic oligarchy. It's not a long book, you can read it in an afternoon. GO READ IT RIGHT NOW. @etsallnukethewhales WOW I want to read that book curiousercreature Very rarely is there a book that I must read at any cost This is now one of them hamstergal Note: locate book the-hogfather actually bought this book because of this post and let me tell you, it was a fucking great decision. Besides having a brilliant concept, it's also so well written that in the beginning you don't even notice when another letter is removed. There was one part I had to re-read because I couldn't believe that there wasn't a single 'd' in the last five pages. Seriously, this book is fantastic - iFunny

When sperm whales need a nap, they take a deep breath, dive down about 45 feet and arrange themselves into perfectly-level, vertical patterns. They sleep sound and still for up to two hours at a time between breaths, in pods of 5 or 6 whales, presumably for protection. No one knew whales slept vertically until a 2008 study documented the behavior. And no one captured really good photography of it in the wild until 2017. French photographer Stephane Granzotto was documenting sperm whales in the Mediterranean for his book on the creatures when he came across these sleeping whales. - iFunny
