At the bottom of the very last page of last week’s rabbit hole appeared a final clue that told you to “think about Quixote’s eyes in that movie theater image.”
On the page of last week’s rabbit hole where “light performs gymnastics” (think movie theater) were 3 photos of light beams in the tower at Wizard Academy. If you click the bottom image, you see a couple of emails that were exchanged in the middle of the night shortly after the MMMemo was sent out. (Jeff Sexton stays up until midnight on Sunday night so he can read the MMMemo hot of the press. I think something is wrong with him. Anyway, here’s the email exchange that was posted as a hyperlink from the third photo by the time you woke up and saw the MMMemo. Take a look at the hyperlink below and you’ll see at the VERY BOTTOM of that page it says,
“Keep in mind what it was that finally broke Quixote out of his delusion in Man of La Mancha.”
But the BIG clue, your very first clue, was early in the rabbit hole when you saw this quote (below) from Anthony Burgess. Notice the final line that says, “he is pathetic or comic or sometimes both, he sends words spinning through the air like colored balls.” This is a perfect description of Quixote, don’t you think? And as if that wasn’t enough, the top photo on the VERY NEXT PAGE was me wearing my Quixote hat, standing in front of a windmill!
A quick Goog of Anthony Burgess would have told you he wrote A Clockwork Orange. And this is the photo you would have seen had you found page 69 of the issue of The New Yorker that was referenced. It was available online, by the way. Just sayin’.
Next week we’ll
have some more fun.
