    PKD tossed a joke every now and then into his novels so I honestly wouldn't be surprised to happen upon such a thing during a reading.

    Obviously, there are many theories about what happened here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%BC_Boshe but it would be hilarious if all those experts were overthinking the situation, and it was just a prank gone horribly wrong, like this:

    ...I think you posted it in the wrong thread, Lvl.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.

    But you know the Lu Boshe incident that I'm talking about, right? Also, it's a bit ironic that, if only out of necessity, white supremacist Hitler was forced to make alliances with several non-whites. Obviously, the Japanese, but also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amin_al-Husseini

    I didn't, actually. I'm not really familiar with Chinese Literature, not even the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
