Kurt Vonnegut’s story shapes drawn into Google Correlate

Taking a cue from Kottke, I plugged Vonnegut’s story shapes into Google Correlate using the drawing feature, and here’s what I got:

"person who is leading a bearable life, who experiences misfortune, who overcomes misfortune, and who is happier afterward for having demonstrated resourcefulness and strength" = hemorrhoids

boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back again = yellow pages cleveland

creation myth = art blog

Old Testament creation myth = ultimate guitar tabs

Kafka’s metamorphosis = fruit machines

Cinderella story = Max & Erma’s
