Stories on Acid

When describing a book or an author or a movie, people will often say, “it’s like x on acid.”

I was trying to describe my favorite contemporary author to a friend and I decided that acid was not enough. I like fiction on hard drugs.

Then I thought to myself, “why does nobody talk about fiction ‘on pot’?”

I think that fiction written on pot would either be:

  • one long, pointless sentence;
  • (this one is more likely) not written at all;

I guess we are better without it.
