Roundtrip Clawmark hated the word quintessential. It made him queasy to hear or see it. Roundtrip made it his life’s work to eradicate the word from the world. He wrote hundreds of letters to the United Nations, detailing the grave risk to world stability that the continuing use of quintessential represented. Whenever Roundtrip found quintessential in print, he would black it out with a marker pen which he carried for the purpose. Roundtrip stood on street corners and denigrated quintessential until someone slapped him in the face. Roundtrip came to his senses, had a beer, and kept his mouth shut.
