Losing the Battle in War and Peace

As seen in the local paper-

Shanna has lost her battle with War and Peace. A passerby remorsed, "It was a gallant effort, one of the most difficult and long, drawn-out battles I've seen."

A family member sobbed, "She was so brave... right 'til the end."

It is known that Shanna bought the Russian epic with the best of intentions, wanting to broaden her literary horizons. It was a task that proved to be too much. While Shanna believed she could eventually prevail, she chose to end the suffering before it got the best of her.

A service is in the works. In lieu of sending flowers, memorial contributions can be made to your local public library as Shanna wishes the memory of her courageous effort not be in vain.


  1. OMG too funny!!! Sorry for your defeat.

  2. Thanks, Jenn! My mom was shocked that this is the New Thing that got the best of me!
