Neil Gaiman is one of the good ones.

When you are oddly awake, you find things on the internet which are whimsical and amuse you for many minutes more than they usually would. You also find other people on the internet, who say things like this in regard to that thing that was whimsical, like:


“Which is a good explanation, but somehow less satisfying than my idea that by clicking on these things we were powering a hellish device made of owls and body parts in an alternate London….”

Which is very reassuring because it means (a) there are people out there whose brains work like mine might sometimes and, no, the world doesn’t always consider them completely buggers and (b) one day there might be a Gaiman book about a hellish device made of owls and body parts situated in alternate London. Which could totally be fun.
