I come in peace, it said, ... take me to your Lizard.The Secret Service is afraid they'll bring back the wrong lizard...
Ford Prefect, of course, had an explanation for this, as he sat with Arthur and watched the nonstop frenetic news reports on television, none of which had anything to say ...
It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see...
You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?
No, said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, nothing so simple. Nothing anything like so straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people.
Odd, said Arthur, I thought you said it was a democracy.
I did, said Ford. It is.
So, said Arthur, hoping he wasnt sounding ridiculously obtuse, why dont the people get rid of the lizards?
It honestly doesnt occur to them, said Ford. Theyve all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government theyve voted in more or less approximates to the government they want.
You mean they actually vote for the lizards?
Oh yes, said Ford with a shrug, of course.
But, said Arthur, going for the big one again, why?
Because if they didnt vote for a lizard, said Ford, the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?
Kind of like Democrats vs. Republicans.
Should have let the lizard eat the snake who ate the dog.
Are they going to lick the flies off of his face?
Giant Lizard indeed. Needs immediate investigation, on site.
Wasn’t the Hilliary traveling circus just there? No chance she arranged a “lizard swap” as a surprise for her boss, now is there?
“lazy water lizards” - I didn’t know Mooocheel went with him.
I can understand the SS concern. Lizards eat medium rodents, and carrion, so our Usurper would be in definate hazard. Getting turned into Siamese lizard dropping would be a step up. tho...
I’m betting they won’t publish my comment, as usual!
27 replies and still no “Thailand?”??
That’s what I would tell the Secret Service too. HA! HA!
Almost as funny as the bunny trying for jimehh.
The president from Indonesia doesn’t know this?
Headline: President to support giant lizard marriage.
