Once upon a time I read a short story by Isaac Asimov, entitled “Shah Guido G”, a story about a floating cityisland named Atlantis, it’s Shah named Guido G and the synchronized landing of a flotilla of flying craft called Waves all at the same time. Yes, you might guess correctly what happened next, and that the whole story was nothing but a massive setup for a single punchline. Groan. It was a so-called Shaggy Dog story, and I realized that Asimov even actually gave that fact away in the title. (read it like) “Shahgui-doG”. Groan again.
You see a Shaggy Dog story rambles on at length, only to end in a punch-line like sudden and “humorous” way.
