Glad to be an American... [Jul. 12th, 2007|01:41 pm]

See, now I'm already obsessing about the subject line -- all the useless stuff in the world, all of the stupid made-up names...Prius, what the hell is that, a car with one of those four hour hard-ons...or is that what you call the annual natal day celebration of Priapus...which would be a four hour hard on, really. Would gods have a natal day? Priapus, is that when you cross a hybrid vehicle with an octopus...why the hell don't we have a name for our selves: something snazzier than U.S. Citizen, which is dorky, and American, which is inaccurate?

I should consider getting more sleep or charging admission to my head. But then you'd have to sign a waiver, which would mean lawyers...

This is me on 4 hours sleep, taking a break between the two clients on this two-client day. And one of my ears is crackling...hmmm.

Anyway -- now that China has executed...and quickly, no? I'm guessing the appeal process in China works like this: "I would like to file a motion to appeal this decision." "No." Ka-pow.

Now that China has executed the guy who allowed, even encouraged vast quantities of food adulteration and other sins (like he was the only cog that let this happen. There had to have been a meeting somewhere in China: "Well, let's just execute this guy. After all, their president is a Texan. They LOVE executions. And they have the attention span of a gnat in heat. Two weeks from now, all they'll remember is that we took care of it just the way they would've."

Anyway...Scooter and a lot of other guys have to be thanking the gods that they were born HERE and not in China, no? Which would lead me to weighing the odds that they would have even gotten caught, against the odds that they would have been able to do what they did in China, against...ah, but thankfully for you all, that is the sound of my printer finally getting its sh** together. Time to put my head to the task of labels and heating instructions and leave you nice people alone...

Well, there is "Yank," which is what other countries' citizens call us, but then if you go back to that "Prius" thing, maybe that would be painful...

Yanking the Prius thing sounds like adolescence.

I was always fond of "Capitalist Pig" when overseas in the 80s.

You know it would make people a little more conscience of their actions. Can you image? Mr. Gates your computer program is crap and you know we think you knew about the craptasticness of your product. Your guilty come with us to the plastic sheeting.
