Oh, white namer. Where were you 3 weeks ago? I don't know the color of my baby's name...

Almost makes me forget completely about the Onion Knight.

So, does anybody think they get the current doodle?

well, yeah.

it's an adroit commentary on the role of governmental agencies in carrying out "good" (albeit economically or emotionally difficult) activities, and the risk to both that which the governmental agency is attempting to preserve and the ordinary citizen, should those agencies lose sight of the true, underlying, goal in a drive to maintain absolute compliance with the activities mandated to acheive that goal - a case of not seeing the forest for the trees, as it were (particularly apt in this instance, as it is the forestry department mindlessly carrying out destructive activities in their zeal for preservation). while ordinary citizens may acquiece to the governmental juggernaut, pursuaded by the high ideals espoused by their leaders, an enlightened and activist citizen may force a clear-eyed view of the situation, and stop the unwitting harm done by those who merely go along in a good cause. thus, like so many things, it can be appreciated on many levels - not only in the surface situation of preserving our forest heritage and the ecosystem it supports, but in darker scenarios, such as wars fought for "good" causes, and even the failure of the ordinary citizen to demand accountablility from the government for its abrogation of our constitutionally-derived rights in an effort to save us from "terrorists". it is, indeed, all of us, all who go along without question, all who accept the surface assurance of an unexamined bureaucracy that the immediate evil done is necessary for the long-term good, who are at fault for the destruction these entities wreak, not only to that which they pretend to save, but to ourselves, the boobeoisie, who accept an unexamined assurance that "it's the law".

that, or another one where everyone else drops bup in the $#!%.

and your new av still disturbs me.

I get it on a basic level, but is there a specific recent event being criticised? I live on the other side of the world and am lazy so don't pick up much news on the lower key local policies of such distant nations. Around here we love burn backs. Can't get enough of them.

i note that you are markedly _not_ commenting on my comment. don't think i haven't noticed your not noticing.

you're ticked i don't like the av, right?

I still haven't finished reading yours.

My wife says you got it, so I guess so.

mouse has been reading too many of my blurbs over the years. It was kind of eerie. Except mouse's explanation was way more coherent than my blurbs.

All I can say after reading it is, BJ, is (1) you must have flown over the holidays and (2) the TSA is also probably your fault. Somehow.

Hey, I only subjected you to randomized blurbs twice. What calumny!

actually, i was referring to _my_ randomized blurb.

now, mind, i did it out of my own head, and not any technological wonder-program...but i think i may have a handle on this semi-directed randomosity.

It's a sort of Zen, I've found. Once you start, it just kind of ... takes on a life of its own. I'm happy you've found your center.

bup is apparently got called up as part of the recent troop surge in Iraq. There can be no other explanation as to why the Doodle hasn't been updated -- he has no social life, his regular job is a joke, and nobody talks to him.

So Bup sold out to the meat council.

I hear seal hunting is also looking for a public face.
