Next to this, Dog Bites Man is a black swan.

There's a character in John Brunner's iconic sci-fi novel Stand on Zanzibar who spends all his time stoned on hallucinogenics and watching news feeds. The irony is that he believes that he is inventing it all because it is far too unbelievable to be anything other than fiction - so he keeps repeating, "Christ, what an imagination I've got."

I thought it was hilarious when I initially read it, and up until the turn of the century. Now when I think of it, it makes my forehead sweat.
