    Kafka-esque

    Thank God most schools in the US stopped teaching anything worth reading, because in the 90s I was getting a bit annoyed at the over use of the term Kafka-esque. Thankfully the metamorphosis of modern education into a big joke has caused a reduction in the use of this banal trope...
