October 29, 2010
I guest-lectured a Sociology of Media seminar yesterday. The topic turned to politics, and I pounced.

I said, "Okay, since we're on the subject, I'm stumping for a candidate. Here's some of his platform. Provision of livelihood. Equal rights. Breaking of debt-slavery. Expansion of old age benefits. The right to a higher education. The outlaw of child labour. These are just some of the planks in the platform. How many of you are with me on this?"

About a quarter of the sleepy hands present went up.

"Ah! Half of you just voted for Adolf Hitler!"

pwnd! busted! pwnd! busted!
