Fire the Canon

 

We read chapters 7-11 of A Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole.  The protagonist, Ignatius J. Reilly, gets a job as a hot dog vendor and continues ruining everyone’s lives.  Theo knows all the characters’ names.  Rachel revels in her non-consumption of meat.  Jackie’s valve acts up.  Topics include: hot dogs, dinosaurs, The Hunger Games, bad YA dystopias, Harry Potter, Divergent, three-party systems, The Young Pope, Saint Christopher Cynocephalus, dog boys, and college urban legends.
