Jonathan Livingston Seagull [book]

 Jonathan Livingston Seagull [book]

AFTER STARLIGHT BARKING SOMEONE SUGGESTED I SHOULD READ THIS, I HAD NEVER HEARD OF IT BUT IT'S APPARENTLY FAMOUS ENOUGH FOR SIMPSONS (AND KEY AND PEELE) TO JOKE ABOUT.  IT'S A VERY STRANGE EXTREMELY 70S NONSENSE ALLEGORY FOR THAT WEIRD SORT OF 1970S MYSTICISM WHERE IT'S BUDDHISM KINDA BUT JESUS IS THERE AND VERY IMPORTANT, BUT IN THIS CASE IT'S ALSO ABOUT SEAGULLS FOR SOME REASON. 

PS. HONESTLY THIS KINDA ENDED UP BEING TOO STRAIGHT FOWARD, IT WASN'T REALLY WEIRD OR OUT THERE ENOUGH TO BE THAT FUNNY OR INTERESTING, MAYBE THIS COMING OUT RIGHT IN 1970 MEANS IT WAS BEFORE THIS WHOLE SORT OF THING BECAME A THING?  BUT IT WAS JUST SOME VAGUELY GNOSTIC IDEAS WITH THE ONLY REAL HIGHPOINT BEING THE SEAGULLS ALL HAVING FULL NAMES.
