here we go again

 […] that use of parody, absurdity, pranks, slippery identities, deceit and beguiling 
humour in the face of serious political struggle. These are all characteristics of the Trickster  
[…] He/she/it - for its gender is often undecided - exists on the borderline between life and 
art, the selfish and the communal, the real and the imagined, soul and body. The spirit of
disorder, the shape shifting trickster adds chaos to order to create a whole. Lying to tell the 
truth, the trickster’s sly mischief heals the world.” 
(Jordan, J, In the Footnotes of Library Angels:  A Bi(bli)ography of Insurrectionary Imagination)
