    "A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men." -Roald Dahl, and best experienced via the inimitable Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka

    I can't claim any relationship with wisdom, but I am on deeply intimate terms with nonsense.

    Beauty may only be skin deep, but stupid goes all the way thru

    A Richard Bach quote! I love it!

    Although, my favorite from that book is:

    "Everything in this book may be wrong."

    the flesh covers the bone
    and they put a mind
    in there and
    sometimes a soul,
    and the women break
    vases against the walls
    and the men drink too
    much
    and nobody finds the
    one
    but keep
    looking
    crawling in and out
    of beds.
    flesh covers
    the bone and the
    flesh searches
    for more than
    flesh.

    there's no chance
    at all:
    we are all trapped
    by a singular
    fate.

    nobody ever finds
    the one.

    the city dumps fill
    the junkyards fill
    the madhouses fill
    the hospitals fill
    the graveyards fill

    nothing else
    fills.
    Charles Bukowski

    Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for yourself.
