The age of high brow Seriousness is over.  We find
cow sculptures invading Chicago -- even on the ledge 
of the opera house.

Computer languages used to have meaningful, formidable 
names in UPPERCASE:  FORTRAN, ALGOL, PL/I.  Now we
have Python -- named after practitioners of the most
irreverent form of satire since Lenny Bruce.

The age of low brow Whimsicality is upon us.  I see
signs and portends in the distance.

PIGgies take their sense of humor seriously.  Don't mess 
with them unless you want a pie in your face.  ;-)
