The Fold Of The House Of Escher

Horrorgami ...
  [vote for,

A short story written in the first person by an unnamed narrator, describing their experience when visiting a gloomy gothic mansion designed by M. C. Escher and built entirely of cardboard, ending in a final cataclysmic scene where the house collapses into two dimensions, but still retains two functional staircases that can be used on both sides.

Shocking lack of mentions of foil http://en.wikipedia...She_%281965_film%29

       Much better than Usher's attempts at being an M.C, and whose singles are at least as dreary as Poe.

       The sequel is about M.C.'s foray into equine breeding, working title "The Foal of the Horse of Escher".

       I thought the sequel was going to be about trousers dropping off a large scab - "The Fall of the Hose of Eschar".

       I seem to remember a film with Ursula Andress playing an eternal goddess, but one still thrifty enough to wrap left-overs for another day, before the Morlocks got her.   

       I believe it was entitled "The Foil of the House of Ayesha".

       I remember seeing a documentary about an emaciated German tractor industrialist who wore Ill-fitting traditional Bavarian garb: The Fall of the Hose of Eicher.

       It has been drawn to our attention that there may be a copyright infringement in the title; it seems there is an academic report in print on the subject of hydrocarbon pollution South-East of Walton-On- Thames, causing mild atmospheric distortions. Ask at your local bookshop for a copy of "The Fuel Of The Haze Of Esher" ...

       This idea would be particularly popular amongst certain rural Scots, i.e. the folk of the Howes of Ayrshire.

       I did hear of a German of extremely miserable disposition who spoke so slowly as to be tedious:   

       The drawl of the grouse of Prussia.

       As the climax comes near in the international Origami competition, Lobsang reveals the killer move, doing the entire Himalaya range in complete silence the...The Hush Of The Fold Of Asia   

       That almost makes sense..I must be slipping...

       Have you seen those people who go angling annually in frozen lakes? They fish in the hole of ice yearly.
