â€œThe One with the Fountainheadâ€ is a parody of Ayn Randâ€™s novel The Fountainhead, modelled on a two part episode of the hit television sitcom Friends. I heard from at least one person who has not watched the show, and still found my parody to be funny (and also a friend who watched the show, but not the book, and enjoyed it, but I guess you probably have read the book).
I originally wrote it in 1997 - around the 3rd season of Friends (which was also when I read The Fountainhead), but I've enhanced it much more recently with some newer material. Originally, I believed I held the original book with a lot of respect, but now I feel that I had quite a bit of philosophical issues with its plot and you can say it is a bit like a funky modernisation.
Hope you enjoy it, and comments and corrections would be welcome.

If you enjoyed it, you may enjoy the other stuff in the Humour/fiction/writing section of my personal web site including a lot of shorter "TL;DR"-friendly aphorisms, quotes, and factoids.
