The Snotgreen Sea. The Scrotumtightening Sea.
This isn't a festival for the literati. Everybody joins in. I don't know of any other day entirely devoted to a book. I don't know of any other occasion when an entire city puts aside its petty crime and social differences and ignores the bad weather to celebrate a book. That makes Bloomsday one of the most magical days of the year.
This year, the comic book artist Robert Berry has recreated the novel in an astoundingly beautiful comic book rendition and made it available online.
Happy Bloomsday Pajibans one and all!
