Deep Thoughts from the Quill of the Other C.S. Lewis

Welcome to the first in an occasional series of fictitious quotations from a fabricated contemporary of the great Oxbridge professor, Clive Staples Lewis.

The C.S. Lewis who authored these questionable observations, Clyde Scissors Lewis, possessed a worldview enigmatically different from that of the esteemed Christian author. Despite the fact that their two lives overlapped in a variety of ways, the similarities were superficial.

A brief biography of the lesser Lewis is available at this link.

The Other C.S. Lewis: A Brief Biography

By all means, do not confuse the wisdom of the genuine article with his shadowy counterfeit. Despite any cursory similarities between the two men, this is most definitely not the C.S. Lewis readers have come to know and love.

    Just as I suspected… this post was too odd to elicit any comments. It’s so different from the normal (more serious) things one expects here Mere Inkling, that people aren’t quite sure how to respond.

    It’s a minority of folks who like out-of-step satire and humor like that posed by Monty Python and Clyde Lewis. If you actually follow the link to the pseudo-biography, you may find the more developed satire there more interesting.

    Is this like a Dopplenamer series?

    This promises to be entertaining!

    Are you sure that the middle initial stood for Scissors? The biography has a vaguely familiar ring to it, reminds me of someone I heard of before but the name is on the tip of my tongue.

      Glad you (seem to have) enjoyed it. I’m pretty sure it was “Scissors,” since I can’t think of another office supply beginning with “s” to parallel “Staples.”
