} Can you believe supplicants these days? I must say, I have noticed a
} significant lack of grovelling in the last few months. Perhaps I should
} just Zot you! Yes, yes.
} Look! I hope all you disrespectfull, smarty pants, umm.. well just down
} right RUDE supplicants are listening up because... Oh. OK, JUST THIS
} ONCE, you understand, but this is the VERY LAST TIME. OK, OK, I'll
} answer it, but the grovel better be good next time! Got it?
} I mean, there was a time when just to be compared to anything lesser
} than one of the greater gods got you a zot. Like, "Hi Oracle, you're
} the best!" Hey - Goodnight supplicant. But these days, hey, think
} yourself lucky with a grovel like that. Huh! I mean, lately it's been
} luxury to get even a hello, let alone a simple "Hi Orrie!"
} Now, where was that question again...... Oh, right, a 1996.president.US
} Will you look at that! 1996 - only two years away. Like, "Hi Orrie (you
} omniscient being you!) what did I have for breakfast?" or "What number
} am I thinking of?"
} I mean, that really does it. That REALLY does it! First, that _SCUMBAG_
} supplicant has the hide to supply not even the hint of a grovel, and
} then a question like this? I mean, well.
} What do you mean "Well, what's the answer?"
} Yes sure I know!
} Listen! No, just shut up.
} Who's ignorant?!
} << ZOT! >>
} You owe the Oracle a cardboard box to keep your ashes in. One of those
} ones that Garry Larson (tm) mugs come in will be fine, oh, and you may
} as well throw in the mug too, because I don't think you'll have much
} use for it. Oh, and I already have the one with the polar bears on it.
} Yeah, thanks.
