“There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute”
Believe it or not,
I read somewhere* that
Some land snails can
Lift ten times their weight
Up a vertical surface;
So if you were as strong as that
And sucked just as well
And weighed in at one hundred-fifty pounds,
You could haul one thousand
Five hundred pounds of suckers
Straight up a wall.
MELIGALAS, Greece—(Weekly Hubris)—11/22/10—Earthlings, even as you read this, things are getting worse:
“Invasion of the Slug People”
They’ve finally taken over everything
When you no longer have enough
Time to shovel the slime you’ve left behind.
Which means They are Already Here!
