Quote of the month (or actually, until I get sick of it).
"I wish I was in heaven sitting down"
(I knew them once, before they achieved electronic posterity.)
And a few of my favorite redneck haikus
MOTHER AND CHILD
Crusted in boogers
Stained with Kool-Aid, baby has face
Only Mama loves
Set the VCR
Dukes of Hazzard Marathon
Starts at 9 O'Clock
Tonight we hunger
Grandma sent grocery money
To Robert Tilton
Damn, in that tube-top
You make me almost fergit
That you're my cousin
Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had
warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo,
Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.
In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace,
and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.
--Harry Lime in 'The Third Man'
Poverty was an absence of reflection and beauty, not an absence of money.
