February 12, 2009: Though Michael Ingall died on August 12, 2004, Farklempt lives on here on the Web.
A eulogy for Michael by Rabbi Alvan Kaunfer is online here.
This site has been down for nearly a year, but it's back up to stay.

Welcome To The World of Farklempt

Michael as baby

     One day Lord Korechika, the Minister of the Centre, brought the Empress a bundle of notebooks. "What shall we do with them?" Her Majesty asked me...

     "Let me make them into a pillow," I said.

     "Very well," said Her Majesty. "You may have them."

     I now had a vast quantity of paper at my disposal, and I set about filling the notebooks with odd facts, stories from the past, and all sorts of other things, often including the most trivial material. On thewhole I concentrated on things and people that I found charming and splendid, my notes are also full of poems and observations on trees and plants, birds and insects. I was sure that when people saw my book they would say, "It's even worse than I expected. Now one can really tell what she is like." After all, it is written entirely for my own amusement, and I put things down exactly as they came to me...

     As will be gathered from these notes of mine, I am the sort of person who approves of what others abhor and detests the things they like.
