[3 a.m. Grey stripe on black stripe, no light, just shadows. Schmutzie and Palinode cannot sleep.]
Palinode: They're all sluts on Jupiter.
Schmutzie: Why's that?
Palinode: The gravity's so strong that they can't do any light petting. Heavy petting is their baseline.
Schmutzie: Wow. They are slutty.
Palinode: Bunch of slutty Jovians in the sky.
Schmutzie: I was going to call them Jupiterites. Or Jupitites.
Palinode: Nope. They're Jovians.
Schmutzie: And they're jovial?
Palinode: Jovial jovians. There's probably a connection between the words.
Schmutzie: I bet there's a connection between their mood and their sluttiness.
Palinode: Happy Sluts of Jupiter!
Schmutzie: You should write something called The Politics of Slutty Jovians.
Palinode: Maybe I will. And maybe I just did.
OMG SO META
