Revenge by Index

An index can be many things. Usually it's a helpful guide to the contents of a book, a friendly way in to the information. A helping hand...

BUT ...

There lurks a darker side ... the index as revenge!

D├ętente by Index: On Earl Sprague’s Invitation to a Subheading

This article by Matt Seidel is one of the most hilarious things I've read in a long long time! It is fictional, but so utterly wonderful ... Matt clearly knows a little about indexing, as he's come up with a very convincing and vengeful index! 

It's not often that indexes are a source of comedy, or even mentioned in cartoons (although this is a notable recent exception!). This article is making indexers around the world laugh immoderately and possibly pee a little too — thank you Matt! (His other articles are very funny too, check out his website!)
