Breaking the Fourth Wall: Under the Button Writer Pens Article About Breaking the Fourth Wall

Yes, it’s true: I am currently writing an article about breaking the fourth wall.

And by doing so, I am breaking the fourth wall.

(The third wall was that of my parents’ garage. I regret breaking the third wall.)

You see, I have no fears about taking Under the Button to uncharted, postmodern territory. None at all. I mean, if I weren’t a true artistic innovator, do you really think I’d have the idea to write such a conceptually advanced piece?

Maybe next I’ll break the fifth wall and write a subliminally communicated interpretive dance piece about how I’m subliminally communicating an interpretive dance piece.

And after that, the sixth wall, the brand new one in my parents’ garage.
