Simon Petrikov Unearths Ancient Treasure
Silly man returns from expedition with a marginally exciting discovery.
By Bruce Geuse, Andersonian Standard
It was ______ morning that greeted this ___ gathering of hard-drinking for journalists and curious pigeons. The impromptu press conference was convened by professor of archaeology and bon vivant, Simon Petrikov. You may remember Petrikov from that thing Fa___nva. Well that guy is back from his latest expedition in the Hindu Kush or wherever.
With much pomp, Petrikov unveiled the most significant piece from the dig to a rapt audience. Turns out it was just a book. A ratty-looking leatherbound manual whose title Petrikov had translated as “The Enchiridion”.
The cover; embossed with a still life and inset with a variety of gems was alright to look at.
“This book seems to contain rules of conduct -“
Please… Would you cook for me?
