You can fool your eyes,
You can fool your ears;
You can fool Nobel Judges when they’re
All full of beers;
But no matter how you try,
No matter how you grunt;
You can’t trick a five-year-old
Who has a forty-five.

…and a viewer silently asks himself: “Have I just turned on ‘The News’ – or WHAT’?

Unconfirmed Rumor:

When he was, “in a hurry” — this one man would, “go real fast.”

That there is little left to say, after that.


Another episode in: “Why People Do Weird Things”:

One man thought:
“If just before you die, everybody suddenly thinks: ‘I’m just about to die!’
How come there’s nothing similar regarding being dumb!?”

— And yet another unnoted reason why so many men feel resentful toward themselves & life.


Okay — wanna try it again!? –
A complex man is a happy man…               If the complexity is intellectual, and
If it is of his own doing.


And now another reading from our, “Non-Partisan, City Dictionary”:
Religion: Civilization’s velvet-clad bouncer.


One man stopped a moment of late to wonder:
“Do people really want to improve themselves organically, unconditionally? Or
Do they actually just want to be able to better cope with what they already are?!”

Or: Would men really be-pleased-to-be-shown brand new road maps? — or,
