I Love Dick

How might Fan Studies, a branch
in the field of popular communications,
contribute to our understanding of
"high art practices" such as
Dick Armey fanfics and Dick Cheney
Electric Boogaloo? What subtext
can be extracted from the stories
where the Dicks spend inordinate
amounts of time doing Facebook memes
or comparing pros and cons of shampoo?
It's simple, even for noobie literary critics.
The subtext is: We love Dick in all forms.
Some love Dick(s) a lot. Maybe
psychological intervention is necessary.
Or a careful slide into another subject...
say, Quayle? One could do a lot
of fun things with Quayle.
