In deference to an ancient code honored by recappers through the ages, I watch every episode of Adventure Time at least twice before writing about it. The code was established by Confucius in 510 BC when recapped the minutes of Justice Ministry meetings to his disciple and only grandson Zisi.
The code evolved to accommodate the complex, variegated needs of recappers from around the world. Napoleon famously recapped shopping for heightening shoes to his admirals, while Cate Blanchette’s character in Lord of the Rings recapped the entire movie to the audience as it was happening. In an earlier draft, this gag culminated with some guy named Albert recapping the recappers code for his friends one night in college, but I decided it was too meta to be funny so now I’m writing about not wanting to publish a joke about the joke I’m writing about publishing.
