the almost forced happiness
of loving in vain
it may be in completely bad taste, but i can't help laughing about this whole crematorium debacle and the obsession the news media has with it.
"so norbert, where do you want to put this one?" "oh, just stick it anywhere. i think there's room back behind the toolshed" "no, don't you remember? that's where we put them in 1979" "oh, yeah, how about at the end of the woodpile? oh, wait, that's where we put the ones in 1986. just drop it down by the lake. i'll find a spot for it."
"you know, dan, it really sucks that the state department and our corporate handlers won't let us show the bodies of all those villagers in afghanistan. can't you just imagine the ratings?" "yeah, i know what you mean. good thing we have this crematorium story. otherwise they'd all be watching the damn Olympics on NBC"
