Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Western civ is really sumthin'
Now exploding, now galumphin'
Hitting heights of pure aesthetic
But voting for a cheap prosthetic;
Striving to push knowledge higher
But following the cheats and liars.
How do people hope to live
In the whirl of Western Civ?
Though their thoughts are like a cancer,
Westerners have found an answer!
They can make the world look rosy
With a flexible tea-cozy!
This is not just tommyrot
For those with different-shaped pots
Catch the vision, heed the call!
Now at last, one size fits all!
