Icebox Breakfast Bot

A William Carlos Williams-parodizing Mastodon bot.

Icebox Breakfast Bot is a Mastodon bot created by Allison Parrish parodizing William Carlos Williams ‘ poem This Is Just To Say.

This is a simple Mastodon bot, written in response to Mark Sample’s excellent Just To Say Bot. The words that Mark’s bot switches out in its generative process, this bot retains, and vice-versa.

I made this as an experiment, to see why Mark’s poetic and procedural choices mattered when he made his bot.
What I discovered: Mark’s implementation highlights the original poem’s anti-capitalist underpinnings, evident in the narrator’s begging forgiveness for unwelcome exploitation. My bot, on the other hand, is about all the whimsical scenarios you can think up about plums, iceboxes and breakfasting.
