Bobey Dig

By Allison Parrish for NaNoGenMo 2019.

Another NaNoGenMo entry: Moby Dick rewritten with Pincelate so that it sounds like the narrator has a head cold. For best results, enjoy with "a pitch-like potion of gin and molasses."

An excerpt, alongside lines from the original:

Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale;
Toweded thee I roll, thou all-desdroidge bud aghogering whale;

to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee;
doed the lazd I grabel with thee; vrob helds heard I stabbe ed thee;

for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee.  Sink all coffins
for haides chaig I spid bied lasd breathe ed thee.  Chig all coveds

and all hearses to one common pool! and since neither can be mine,
ad all herges doed whid kahbed boole! ad chied teither gad be byed,

let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, though tied
led be thed doed doed pieges, while stilled chaige thee, though died

to thee, thou damned whale!  Thus, I give up the spear!"
doed thee, thou dabed whale!  Thus, I gived ub the sbeered!"

(You can use perform transformation on any text, of course. I used Moby Dick? because it seems to be NaNoGenMo tradition to use it for experiments like these.)
