Rejection is a funny thing

It's never much fun to have a story rejected, but I got an amusing rejection earlier this week -- amusing because the same story was rejected a while back, by a different market, for the complete opposite reason: the more recent market because the editor thought it didn't contain anything new, the older one because they considered it "experimental fiction." I don't doubt that one of them is right, but I'm not sure how both could be...

It could be an experiment that someone's done before. Like when those dudes had re-done Mendel's peas and inheritance experiment without ever having heard of Mendel. And because they had done it, Mendel got rediscovered and he got all the credit and no one even knows those dudes names.
