"The sisters trooped down the stairs...The house smelled of garlic, which one of the servants had festooned all over everything, perhaps to mask the smell of the corpse, perhaps as an insult to their mother."
- Maria Devahna Headley
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

"To him who seeks a reason but cannot abide any hypothesis of a design, whether in the form of Providence or of the Diabolical, there remains only the rationalist's substitute for demonology--statistics."
  -Stanisław Lem
"When I say 'engineering', I have unreasonable expectations.  It must - as you know - look good in PADS AND give you plenty of help ducking and weaving in meetings.  But it must also, at some distant point in time, function.  If it does not, then you must accept that you are not in fact an engineer but instead an MBA.  Hang your head in SHAME, sinner!"

"He lays down and says, 'Beat me, daddy.'"--Malcolm X, during his speech at the founding rally of his Organization of Afro-American Unity, 1964.
There is no reason to,
Be ashamed of poetry. It,
Is natural. But you should,
Still do it in private,
And wash your hands afterward.

From last week's episode of Welcome To Night Vale, written by Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor, and Brie Williams: "The prison of your own mind is undergoing budget cuts."
There is no reason to,
Be ashamed of poetry. It,
Is natural. But you should,
Still do it in private,
And wash your hands afterward.

Courtesy of a friend, a big black woman with an eyepatch: "Uh, 911, hello? I have an issue. There's a giant black lady outside my house. She is fighting a giant monster made of vegetable soup. She's completely naked except for an eyepatch, and is swinging around a giant emery board. Also-- ...hello? Hello?! Goddammit, every fucking time."

Courtesy of another friend is a dramatic reading of that blurb: https://vocaroo.com/i/s0DitMfauyzX
