Story: Pot Luck

A group of elephants, thinking themselves wisest of all the beasts, decided to form a society. They needed a leader, and rather than decide on one themselves, they asked the Wise Old Elephant what to do. She wondered why they could not make their own decision, and to make them think, asked why they could not create their own leader. They did not understand her question, and instead created a King.

He was not a very good King but they followed his orders. Their society suffered but they thought that was just their fate. Eventually, their King died. They had gotten used to someone making their decisions for them, but the King had no children to pass on his Kingosity, so once again the Elephants decided to seek the advice of the Wise Old Elephant.

Frustrated that they had learned nothing, the Wise Old Elephant told them that they should choose a King who would not die. The elephants cheered, for that was exactly the advice they wanted to hear, and they wanted to be told what to do. The Wise Old Elephant then suggested they choose Death as their King. After all, Death was the only being who could not die.

The elephants eagerly followed her advice. But Death, after becoming their King, claimed them as his subjects. As they died, they asked the Wise Old Elephant why she had given them such bad advice.

She replied, because they were willing to follow it.

Is it not a shame that this type of spam blogging exists?

Actually, why should I just let it go at complaining about blog spam?

Let us look at the type of this spam.

Are there no male sexy celebs? Are there no androgenous sexy celebs? Are there no sexy non-celebs?

Now, I am a male, yes. I am programmed by biology--if you are religious, by God Himself--to look at attractive women and think: "Hey! Babe! Cheekbones! Bosoms! Child bearing hips! I can continue my genes!"

What does this prove? First, that, obviously, we can blame sexism on God.

Second, that Western Civilization does NOT DESERVE to continue it genes.

Third, my jeans no longer fit. Is it because a) I eat too much, or because b) I'm just glad to see a sexy celeb (as Mae West kind of said).

By the way, to avoid spam blogging in the future, I have now added "Word Verification". Lindsay Lohan and friends apologize for any inconvenience.
