The Entry Word – 1.1

PART I ‘MENAGERIUM JODOCUS’

1.1 It is the global television coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics that brings about the end of the world. No virus. Outbreak. Meteor hurtling earthward. Planet warming. Planet cooling. Rising tides. Tidal waves. Instead, viewers around the globe are endlessly encouraged to email and text and tweet and share their views on the Games and the athletes and the achievements and as always happens too many people get too much wrong too many times simultaneously and so they mistype and misspell and send messages that don’t arrive and texts that aren’t delivered and tweets that never do and shares that never are but instead of these messages and texts and tweets and shares just vanishing forever they all align instead into one single endless string and spell out in their global accident the Entry Word.

And that is that.
