The Grismack Effect

Weirdness can really hurt sometimes. Some people may not have experienced this but I most certainly have. Sometimes, someone will say something that is so weird that my head hurts. It takes something fairly weird to accomplish this effect but it is possible. Now of course, this not to be confused with a Snarf, which will cause all thought process to stop in the Snarf-victim's head.

One evening, as Erik and I were leaving work (A great many epiphanies have occured driving down Rosemead in Erik's car.), he said something so incredibly weird that I clutched my head and screamed out in a incomprehensible language. Erik laughed until his entire head was bright read and then informed me between gasping breaths that I was clutching my head. I was laughing too hard to respond. He then asked me if my brain hurt, to which I nodded vigorously. After the pain had gone away, something clicked in my head. I turned to Erik and explained to him what had just come to me.

When you experience something so incredibly weird, one of two things happens. The first effect, which will happen to those who do not accept the weirdness and try to refuse it's existance, is that a current of electricity will flow over your brain and fry off a part of it. This will cause a pain and destroy some of the brain, dumbening you to the point where the weirdness leaves you. The second effect will cause a piece of your brain to detach from the rest of your brain and float to a corner of your skull. It will then huddle there and wait for more of the brain to join it. If you hear enough weird things this exiled part of the brain will form a second brain that will generate weird thoughts. If this brain becomes even stronger it will begin to grow a ribbonlike attachment to the spinal cord, allowing it to make you perform weird physical motions as well.

We both instantly agreed, it was definitely happening. After a second of letting this sink in, Erik asked me if there was any way for this rogue brain to return to the original cluster. The only way for this to happen is to perfomr menial, monotonous, or very normal tasks. Examples of these are writing checks, sharpening pencils, watching soap operas, and paying taxes. Paying taxes being one of the more powerful combatants of this effect.

Having established my theory, we began to share it with the rest of the group. When I finished telling Brian on the way back from the mall, Erik turned around in his seat and declared that we needed to name the effect. We named it The Grismack Effect (pronounced: griz-mak). Grismack had been one cause of the effect on several occasions before we pinpointed the actual occurance and was therefore fitting.

Another interesting point is that there is a low tolerance buildup to Grismack, as I am always being hit by new weirdness. Through this we may eventually find out what happens when the brain is fully Grismacked. This concept in itself is scary to me and so, I am going to go write some checks.
