Intertextuality Of The Canine:Situating The Beagle

The extraordinary, hortatory beatitude of the posthumously submitted paper, "Intertextuality of the Canine: Situating the Beagle" is the latest - and the last - of Barbadossian scholar ShrankShronk III's massive contribution to PostModern thought.

Dr ShrankShronk III kickstarted his glorious career with the controversial paper "The Dignified Black Man: The Epistimology of Much Respect" - a catalyst for the ironic reification of Indigenous People both inside and outside Academia.

Indeed, Dr ShrankShronk III - a passionate advocate of Serendipitous Transgression - was a strong leader for his people with the ultimate goal of transcending the depersonalising effect of exploitative capitalism.

Moreover, his judgement and foresight as editor of "Normative Deviations" and the newly-minted "The Elliptical Response" earned him a broad audience, perpetually, intensely, eagerly anticipating his next creative and paradoxical bombshell.

Dr ShrankShronk III died peacefully of Indifferent Hermeneutics.
