Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shorter Leda and the Swan

Reduced to a Haiku.

Gods and mortals, eked
From a woman's loins; Great God:
He flipped her the bird

The word 'haiku' reminds me of a head cold, and iambic pentameter leaves me bereft by tois. Nevertheless, your comrade in coleoidea has been spinning silent EEEs into an art form (from one blogger to another):

Henceforth, may you have
More spine in your spin,
More gripe in your grip,
And more spite in your spit.

As I return to my life underseas,
Keep mud-squiggling those silent EEEs.
