The Mockery is the seventeenth story in Jellyfist. A short story and, as the commentaries say, a hated one. The story is about two odd-looking critters, one is laughing to the other (which looks very deformed). When the deformed one gets tired, he tries to summon some braveness to tell the other that he must stop laughing at him, but the other immediately replies that he won't stop and that he can't do anything to stop him. The deformed one just depresses even further.
