"After unsuccessfully trying to pitch his tent in a tough neighborhood in New Jersey, Gadhafy, Khaddafy, Qadify, uh, Mu Mu, appeared at the U.N. with what appeared to be a rubber nose (C.I.A. studies claimed that the Colonel was in the advanced throes of Syphilitic Dementia and his real nose had decomposed). While Mu Mu ranted and raved on the speaker’s podium with P.J. watching on TV, P.J. became fearful that His Excellency’s rubber nose would fall off and bounce all over the General Assembly like a Super Ball -- Suddenly, P.J. was dumbstruck: Mu Mu reminded him of someone. Who? Who?! YES: Bambo -- Bambi’s brother. Upon further musings P.J. concluded that while Mu Mu had probably earned his venereal disease from a real sheep, Bambo -- immaculate in his purity -- most likely got his from a toilet seat, though sadly the end result was the same in both despots -- absolute lunacy.
"So: Even though everything finally appeared to make perfect sense to P.J., he never shared his discoveries with Nietzche. He was too much of a gentleman, a nice guy, a good neighbor, and an all-around excellent man." - from the Neighborhood by Kevin O'Kendley

Go have a cackle party. We can roast chestnuts in your furnace of guffaws. Thank God I don’t like chestnuts and I don’t know what a furnace is.
