It's been a pleasure cretinizing you.

Last in the series:

If death arrests the fantastic skinniness of my shoulders' two long arms -- employed in the lugubrious pounding of my literary gypsum -- I want the mourning reader at least to be able to say to himself: "One must give him his due. He has considerably cretinised me. What wouldn't he have done had he lived longer? He's the best professor of hypnotism I ever knew!" These few touching words will be engraved on my marble tombstone, and my manes will be content!

Isidore Ducasse, the "Comte de Lautreamont," died two years after writing this, at age 24, under mysterious circumstances. His burial place is unknown.

I cast a long look of satisfaction upon the duality that composes me ... and find myself beautiful. Beautiful as the congenital malformation of man's sexual organs, consisting of the relative brevity of the urethral canal and the division or absence of its lower wall so that this canal opens at a variable distance from the gland and below the penis; or again, as the fleshy wattle, conical in shape, furrowed by quite deep transversal wrinkles, which rises from the base of the turkey's upper beak; or rather, as the following truth: "The system of scales, modes, and their harmonic series does not rest upon invariable natural laws but is, on the contrary, the result of aesthetic principles which have varied with the progressive development of mankind, and will vary again"; and above all, like an ironclad turreted corvette! Yes, I maintain the accuracy of my assertion.

I put together a great side-by-side comparison for a friend who suggested that Bush looked like Scooby-Doo. I can't find it, though, dangit.

Reagan, however, forgot to duck.
