Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/10/2005: A few Things About Mr. Language Wordsmith…

For those of you dilligent readers out there who actually read The Daily Herald article about my "Responsibility Month Experiment"...first I thank you and hope you enjoyed it...but now come the inevitable Problems...

Not that I am paranoid or nothing (reeeally I’m not); But you can’t deny some misgivings and fears…like when you Know you have Dennis Hastert’s Hit Squad is after you, or you have Selachophobia nightmares just Thinking about the Sea World Shark Tank Dining Room

But now I’ve had Mr. Language Wordsmith ...that busybody...Threatening to report Me, Pam, and The Herald Article to the Thought Police ...you know what "sticklers" they can be...

In Pam and My defense…

(And Everyone KNOWS Truth is a Defense against Libel and Slander…excepting, of course, when the Libel and Slander IS the Truth.)

Any way, technically (as The Article mistates) we don't "employ computer controls." (Their wage rates are way too astronomical, so we just buy their contracts outright and use them as slave labor.)

However, we DO employ a few human beings and treat them with all the consideration and fairness they deserve. Unfortunately, we can't afford to pay them what they deserve...but, Hey, trading fairness and consideration for unbelievably low wages ain't bad.

I'm sure most readers didn’t catch this minor point...but I'll handle Mr. Language Wordsmith on my end, and you just have to promise not to call the "U.S. Computer Immigration Department" on us…

And don’t cha’ be telling Dennis our whereabouts neither…or you’ll be NEXT on his list.
