    You, sir, are the finest drawer of hand gestures yet seen in this century. Be Proud.

    God, it must be horrible being Paul McCartney.

    A tiny bear cub is dragged away from its mama in the woods and hustled into the back of a van and taken to a city, where it is sold to a circus-master, and the bear is taught to dance. He is placed in a cage, and, as the music of flutes and drums is played, the floor of the cage is made red-hot; the bear must stand on his rear paws and hop from left foot to right, lest he be scalded. When he has performed his dance properly, the trainer rewards him with food. He is burned and fed, burned and fed; he suffers, and he feeds, and eventually he learns to associate the tapping drums and the thin piping of the flutes with the possibility of searing pain, and he goes into his dance even when the floor of the cage stays cool.

    In time someone alerts the authorities of the animal cruelty being practiced, and the circus is closed down. The bear is released into the wild. He bumbles about, not quite knowing to do with himself. In the forest, he hears the knocking of a woodpecker and the cheep of a robin, and he raises himself up and does his lumbering dance. No one is watching. There is no trainer to tell him when to stop, or to give him food. He dances to the music he imagines he hears. And in time, the bear starves to death.

    That’s what being Paul McCartney must be like, I think.

    Bloody brilliant, Lactus.

    Weepy chortlesnort, Jack. McCartney’s life is exactly like that.

  6. It Burns Says:

    Zom, I see your weepy chortlesnort and raise you a snotty gigglefart.

    Gary, impregnate my wife so that I might rear your child.

  7. It Burns Says:

    I’m actually not married so I would have to hire a hooker to impersonate my wife.

  8. Gary Lactus Says:
