It's a terrible, terrible thing that I suddenly need to post, just moments after Tolkers has regaled us and, no doubt, before most of you were regaled


Will your comments make Theric rich? Let's find out!

Nietzsche, On Us

How strange, that in Las Vegas land
we once combined with murderous will
to lift, like Brute, a knifish hand
against our Master Fob, to kill.

Then see us later--stern, concise:
when Jeph annoyed us by his breath,
we contemplated acts of vice,
together planned his merry death.

By ones, by ones, the tally comes,
each week another Fob-friend gone,
Oh, how the wailing skylark thrums
to see their corpses on the lawn!

How strange that we, of Fobbish band,
should be the authors of our dread!
From pole to pole, across the land,
is howled this message: "FOB IS DEAD!"

¡Synergy! II: Because If Theric Can Recycle Posts Then So Can I

Seven reasons I'm voting for avocado:

  1. It's so versatile. It can go on crackers, in a salad, in guacamole, and the list goes on and on. (And even if it doesn't, who needs more than those three?)
  2. It counts as one of the 3-5 fruits you should eat every day, and, on account of its greenness, doubles as a vegetable.
  3. All green things are good for you.
  4. Avocado is very similar to abogado, which means "lawyer" in Spanish. Um. Hm. Well. Okay, maybe that's not a good thing. But it's still quite tasty!
  5. It has good cholesterol. I mean really, you have to be pretty darn virtuous to take something as bad as cholesterol and make it into a good thing.
  6. No wars have ever been fought over avocado.
  7. No wars have ever been fought with avocado.
Forget Hillary, Barack, and the Mormon guy--vote avocado in 2008.
