I had a dream last night

I dreamed that I was in bed last night when I was awakened by a terrible noise. I looked out the window and saw chimpanzees everywhere. They were screeching and howling, and flinging feces in every direction. But there were some oddly human behaviors, too. Quite a few were drinking alcohol, tipping the bottles down their throats and spilling it down their faces. Some even had guns, which they were waving and firing in a celebratory manner reminiscent of the Old West. But, being chimps, they failed to keep them pointed upwards. Several chimps got shot. It didn't seem to bother the shooters, nor dampen the spirits of the injured.

Then I realized I was awake. It wasn't a dream. Through a sleepy haze I had misinterpreted the scene. They were not chimps, but Bush voters.

And that's when I knew we were facing four more years.

Gone again

The headline on my newspaper (UK Daily Mirror) this morning reads "How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?". I wouldn't give them long before the CIA come visiting, just like the FBI came to see that guy who had a "King George - off with his head!" bumper (fender?) sticker.

They should've elected me, of course. The world would be a better place if they had. smiley - erm Honest! smiley - biggrin

Edward the Bonobo - Gone.

To quote H. L. Mencken re. The Scopes Monkey Trial

"The hillbillies of Tennesee are not less intelligent than the inhabitants of cities, they are simply less well informed."

Bush's War on Terror - and, indeed, his seeming embrace of Christian fundamentalism, are all part of the 'Necessary Illusion'.

Agitate! Educate! Organise!

I just want to apologize on behalf of my country to the rest of the world. A lot. Though I'm afraid that soon, I won't be able to apologize fast enough to keep up.
