} Hmm, three tubers and an island. Hardly the sort of groveli...er,
} address to which I am accustom. No matter, no matter.
} So, I must glean the question from an analysis of Thurgood
} Marshall's dream, eh? Should be a cakewalk for an omniscent like
} myself. Okay, Barney, crank 'er up!!
} (din of engine being started, deafening all but the Gods)
} OK, the ol' Babbage/Freud Difference Engine V.1.0 is up and
} running. Now, I will just carve the input crankshaft with the
} appropriate data:
} Spud spud.
} Oh, thank God!
} Pell-shaking on!
} Putting the rod in place, and engaging the wheel, and presto!
} Instant gestalt.
} ("Powerhouse B", arranged by Carl W. Stalling, fills the aether)
} '..Spud.' -- The subject feels buried beneath tons of earth, with the
} entire world's eyes transfixed upon him. The potato is
} itself the root, hence the feeling of the subject that
} he is at the root of his own problems, and although
} besmothered by the ground, he lives in mortal fear of
} being wrest from his life, washed clean, sliced and
} fried, only to end up in the gullet of some corpulent
} beeswilling Republican.
} 'Spud spud.'-- We see the anxiety not only perpetuated, but doubled
} onto itself, becoming unbearable to the subject. This
} obsession with food will eventually break through to the
} surface, leading to obesity and sloth, and restricting
} sartorial choices to expansive robes. (cf. edible
} 'Ellis!' -- Again we note the isolation, present in the island
} motif. Also, we see the extension of the robes, and the
} secret desire to be a woman, embodied in Miss Liberty
} herself. However, all is not grim for our subject,
} since his choice of the Gateway to the United States
} shows him to still be receptive to the aspirations of
} the world's outcasts. Truly this man has love for
} mankind coursing through his veins, and shall never want
} for the milk of human kindness.
} 'Oh, thank God!' -- The desperation has led to the seeking of solace in
} deities. The subject is so overwhelmed that he allows
} this peace-of-mind expression to become the end-all of
} his troubles.
} 'Pell-shaking on!' -- We see the subject returning from his
} desperation, his previously expressed faith in the deity
} is found to be reassuring. Pell-shaking was a medieval
} ritual for exorcism of demons within one's self,
} involving placing small woodland creatures inside one's
} clothing and then rolling in the dirt, the chants of the
} onlookers drowning the ubiquitous screaming. The subject
} is rid of his anxieties, for the moment.
} 'On!!!' -- The subject is attempting to re-assure himself that the
} pelshaking was successful, by echolaliating the end of
} his previous statement. This is common, and should not
} be alarming to the educated therapist.
} '<EOF>' -- Obviously the subject has a sexual problem.
} The answer to your question is that although Justice Marshall may
} regret that he can no longer function on the Supreme Court, he feels
} that his choice was justified given the circumstances under which he
} lives. And he ejaculates prematurely.
} You owe the Oracle a Cuban penis--er, cigar.
