Did I say I wrote 'em? Huh? Did I? I bloody well assume that any MOABite, even the lowest and most maladroit one-time visitor frightened by the intelligence herein demonstrated, their clawed fingers, hunched over a keyboard and drooling particles of their latest swill (mixed with the juice of some Red Man or Skoal) onto the keys, a miasma of the perfume of stale beer, a long unwashed body, the ancient smoke of cheap cigars, and the eldritch odors of a long-ago dish of cabbage and limburger cheese mingling with the anterior eruptions of their more than ample stomach surrounding them like a gas cloud hovering over the rotting dead on some long-forgotten battlefield, one last yellowed tooth dangling by a thread of blackened tissue over their lip, their hair growing in disappointed tufts upon a boil-covered, pus-oozing pate, would know how to find works by Dryden and Pope (if not immediately recognize the work from the quotation itself).

Do I presume too much of those who dwell here, or of those who, attracted by the brillance shown by MOABites (the ne plus ultra of the Mudcat) like moths around a flame, flicker in and flicker out?

I think not.

For one thing, Mom would disapprove were I to denigrate other people.
