Fun with commerce

Posted by Richard on June 16, 2005

Thanks to Scott Scheule at Cattalarchy, I’ve been exposed to the strange world of Fafblog. Last week, Fafblog provided a whole new perspective on the Raich decision:

The Wonderful World of Commerce!

"Insolent pot!" says Giblets. "Be more vendible!"
"Giblets why are you yellin at that pot plant?" says me.
"Giblets is trying to turn it into commerce," says Giblets. "But buying and selling it is too much work. He wants it to be commerce NOOOOOWWW!"
"Silly Giblets, everything is commerce!" says me. "Let’s step into this maaaagical schoolbus and we will learn all about Our World Of Commerce!"


Be very very quiet… we are commerce-watching. To your left is the beautiful red-crested commerce with its unusual nesting activity and its colorful plumage. Up ahead is the Australian striped mock commerce, which is not commerce but uses its natural camouflage to imitate the markings of commerce and confuse predators. To your right is a big moose! You can shoot em all if you wanna. They’re pretty much the same.

Extra Credit Nature Koan: If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around, and Antonin Scalia doesn’t like it, can we ban it? Yes.

Striped mock commerce. Sounds like something from a Firesign Theater album. "Everything you know is wrong!"
