The Pencil Sharpener Man by R. Richard

      • I spent my early years in the part of Los Angeles known as the South Central. I was known
        as Whi' Boy, which was sufficient to identify me in that place. I'm a skilled kung-fu
        player, using a system that I learned from a Korean I knew only as 'Pak.' It would be
        easier to tell you the places that Pak wasn't wanted by the police, rather than the places
        where he was wanted by the police. Pak's kung-fu system, augmented by some bits and pieces
        from some Chinese practitioners is quick and effective, or I wouldn't be alive today. My
        early education was mostly obtained by stealing books from the public library [I always
        returned them and the Librarian even began to provide me with reading lists.] I did go to
        high schools, but I never really learned anything there. I eventually graduated from the
        University of California at Los Angeles, UCLA, with a degree in mathematics.

        I write science fiction and erotica.

The Pencil Sharpener Man
(R. Richard)

STORY DESCRIPTION

I know why your educational system isn't working. I know because of The Pencil Sharpener Man (TPSM).

I was attending a high school. We had the best by damn English department in the whole world (well, anyhow that's what the high school English Department people told us.) As English students we studied poetry and literature. I don't mean we just read poetry and literature, I mean we delved deep into the artistry of the written word. We understood such eldritch and recondite concepts as 'purple passages,' 'figurative speech' and 'hidden meanings.' Hey babes, we were hip!

In an attempt to get more funding for the English department, TPSM was called in. (I was told that he was called in from the Board of Education.)
TPSM strode into the classroom where I was being educated and pointed dramatically at a familiar object, found in each classroom of the school.
"Write me a theme on the procedure for operating that pencil sharpener," he said.

A house of cards collapsed.
