Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Thursday, September 14, 2006

Thank you sir, May I have another?

With fear and trepidation, I am working out the topic of my first FUMARE post, ready for the spanking that is sure to come. I have decided that I ought to mention a set of subjects upon which commentors and commentrixes can expect to see at the widened table.

Without regard to blazing puffs of smoke, I should offer that some say men are smarter than women. Like the pink elephant dancing about the living room, I doubt that topic would generate much discussion.

On the other hand, I could mention that Talking Heads songs would be a considerably enormous improvement to many parishes, if replacing the GIA licensed crap they pawn as liturgical music. But I know no one would find that to be worth discussing. Besides, it's obvious that an entire segment of society has become like heroin addicts on that ersatz music and to conduct a cold turkey replacement, albeit a great intervention, would probably cause many to arrest in withdrawal pangs.

We could talk about the ground meat evacuating from the sausage grinder in Uncle Tom's cabin, but I know that topic is pretty worked over. Besides, I haven't had my mind control chips installed this week, so I'm unauthorized to comment until I get further commands.

Maybe a discussion on food is best set for the first post. Who would argue with the topic? I mean, food is universal. Or, at least Brillat Savarin said something like that. But that would be no fun. I would have to say something like, McDonalds does not serve food, but rather some matter resembling food. Even that would be of little argumentative moment.

Well, I'm out of ideas. There's many topics ahead, I'm sure, but for now, I'm happy to be here and to make a post on FUMARE. But given my probie status, I suppose I ought properly end this post with
