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. ;-)
P.S. Vote "Silly Party"!
