<p>Hi all,</p><p><a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/TOWTF/">“The One with the Fountainhead”</a> is a parody of Ayn Rand’s novel <i>The Fountainhead</i>, modelled on a two part episode of the hit television sitcom <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friends"><i>Friends</i></a>. 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).</p> <p>I originally wrote it in 1997 - around the 3rd season of <i>Friends</i> (which was also when I read <i>The Fountainhead</i>), 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.</p><p>Hope you enjoy it, and comments and corrections would be welcome. Since this is fan-fiction and a crossover, the licence based on contemporary copyright law is "owned by the copyright owners of the franchises - please don't sue me" but as far as I'm concerned, the mostly original text can be used under <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/">Creative Commons CC-by-sa</a>.</p><p>If you enjoyed it, you may enjoy the other stuff in the <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/">Humour/fiction/writing section of my personal web site</a> including a lot of shorter "TL;DR"-friendly aphorisms, quotes, and factoids.</p>
