Here's a favorite of mine:
Which generated the following:
I have some very startling, very radical -- some might say impertinent -- insights into Mr. Secret Squirrel's latest excuses. For the sake of review, I want to make this clear, so that those who do not understand deeper messages embedded within sarcastic irony -- and you know who I'm referring to -- can process my point. He is the picture of the insane person on the street, babbling to a tree, a wall, or a cloud, which cannot and does not respond to his ruses. Don't get me wrong; Squirrel's outrage at complaints about him is indicative of his self-esteem and value system. But Squirrel does, occasionally, make a valid point. But when he says that a richly evocative description of a problem automatically implies the correct solution to that problem, that's where the facts end and the ludicrousness begins. He wants us to believe that we can solve all of our problems by giving him lots of money. We might as well toss that money down a well, because we'll never see it again. What we will see, however, is that Squirrel is a pretty good liar most of the time. However, he tells so many lies, he's bound to trip himself up someday. Due to the power relationship between the dominator and the dominated, his eccentricity is surpassed only by his vanity. And Squirrel's vanity is surpassed only by his empty theorizing. (Remember his theory that "the norm" shouldn't have to worry about how the exceptions feel?)
Hrmmm, the scary thing is, it makes sense.
