Just Give Up Already - Or just be Zotted

Posted on 11/20/2005 7:20:18 AM PST by dream police

The hope for a better world and better America is gone. Finished. Done for. I don't know when this happened, but it did. So vote if you must. Democrat, Republican -- it doesn't matter. Better to enjoy yourself. Immerse yourself in pop culture. Go see Saw 3. What' J-Lo up to these days? Does Green Day have a new album? Forget about eating healthy. You think you're going to live forever? Have that extra cheese all meat pizza. You know you want it. Drink to excess. Don't pay your debts. Invite the collection agent to take it out in the parking lot if he doesn't like. But whatever you do, don't waste your time working for a better world because it's not going to happen.

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.....
Deteriorata! Deteriorata!

Go placidly
Amid the noise and waste.
And remember what comfort there may be
In owning a piece thereof.

Avoid quiet and passive persons
Unless you are in need of sleep.

Rotate your tires.

Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself
And heed well their advice,
Even though they be turkeys.

Know what to kiss.....and when!

Consider that two wrongs never make a right
But that THREE.........do.

Wherever possible, put people on hold.

Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment
And despite the changing fortunes of time,
There is always a big future in computer main-te-nance.

Chorus

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not
The universe is laughing behind your back.

Remember the Pueblo.

Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mu-ti-late.

Know yourself.
If you need help, call the FBI.

Exercise caution in your daily affairs,
Especially with those persons closest to you.
That lemon on your left, for instance.

Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls
Would scarcely get your feet wet.

Fall not in love therefore;
It will stick to your face.

Gracefully surrender the things of youth:
The birds, clean air, tuna, Taiwan
And let not the sands of time
Get in your lunch.

Hire people with hooks.

For a good time call 606-4311;
Ask for "Ken."

Take heart amid the deepening gloom
That your dog is finally getting enough cheese.

And reflect that whatever misfortune may be your lot
It could only be worse in Milwaukee.

Chorus

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not
The universe is laughing behind your back.

Therefore, make peace with your god
Whatever you conceive him to be---
Hairy thunderer, or cosmic muffin.

With all its hopes, dreams, promises and urban renewal
The world continues to deteriorate.

GIVE UP!

Reprise

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not
The universe is laughing behind your back.

Performed by National Lampoon on "National Lampoon Radio Dinner," a 1972 recording by Blue Thumb Records. Lyrics by Tony Hendra.

I don't support Hollywood any more. If someone I know buys it, I may watch it, but I refuse to give money to people who turn around and support people like Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. The movie looks pretty good though...I am a huge Cash fan.

"It may be some comfort to reflect that the second century was marked, not by the end of the world, but by the prosperity of the age of the Antonines. Our society, too, confronts the alternatives of cataclysm or prosperity. Roman history is a reminder that the latter has its own perils, not less real because they are concealed. There is a pertinent comment of Gregory the Great on the apparent prosperity of the Roman world in the second century -- 'There was long life and health, material prosperity, growth of population, and the tranquility of daily peace, yet while the world was flourishing in itself, in their hearts it had withered away." -- Donald R. Dudley, The Civilization of Rome.

HAH! That's what YOU think!


Who controls the British Crown?

Who keeps the Metric System down?

We do! We do!

Who leaves Altantis off the maps?

Who keeps the Martians under wraps?

We do! We do!

Who holds back the electric car?

Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star?

We do! We do!

Who robs cave fish of their sight?

Who rigs every Oscar night?

We do! We do!

The Dems just do not understand that giving people the freedom to do what they want (buy an X-box) IS WHAT MAKES THE WORLD BETTER.

People do not need to have their hand held from womb to tomb. I sure don't.

If we all act in our own best interests, like the invisible hand, the world does become a better place.
