[silly fic]Severed Heads, Human Sacrifice, and Turtles 1/?

So I'm studying for my Chinese midterm when I suddenly find myself getting really, really fed up with the dry writing style of Sources of Ancient Chinese Philosophy. This snarky little voice in my head starts making all sorts of little comments and, rather than have them come out in, oh, say, my actual midterm, I decided to type it up.

Don't ask me WHY I've chosen to inflict it on you.

I'm probably the only person in the world who will find this amusing, but you never know. It's pretty much a tongue-in-cheek narrative of early Chinese Prehistory-- hopefully it's funny. If anyone has the time to read and comment, I will be forever in your debt.

Note: This piece is not intended to mock anyone. Well, okay, in some ways it IS intended to mock some institutions, but it's a gentle, well-intentioned mocking, mostly of Western Ethnocentrism.
Let's just hope the Chinese government doesn't come after me, either.

This piece is rated PG-13 for my inappropriate sense of humor.
