How can a person who posts such lovely music be that apocalyptic? Or are there two Crumples on this board?

A parallel processor is helpful when trying to apply games theory to the new arms race....and poets are the ones who went out with a whimper....the world still got plenty of bang in it. :whistle:

Back in 2002 an Onion staffer must have been one story short, and ran acrorss mine, then at the Straight Dope message board. Modifying and stealing it. Here is the original:

Indianapolis, IN – Inexperienced garbage collector too interested in garbage.

Robert Johnson and Luther Allison were assigned as a team on garbage truck for Waste Containment Inc. Robert was a 20-year veteran of the garbage collection industry, and preferred not to talk much. Luther had signed up a few weeks back, but everybody knew he was going to community college in September. Robert had sized up Luther the very first week, when Luther asked questions about all trash that was not in a can or bag. "What do think them white folks made this for?" was his usual question. Robert looked at the pile of pressure treated lumber with nails in it. He knew that outside stuff like that was either for kids’ amusement or something to do with a yard or garden. He had seen every possible attempt at home made projects by these suburban guys. "Beats me, but watch out for them nails," he said to Luther.

"This must have been some kind of kids’ playhouse," Luther said at the next house, holding a piece of wood with a colorful cloth attached. "Wonder if these Nintendo controllers still work" he asked at the next, but the wires were obviously in bad shape at the plug end. "Hey, there is a box of CDs here. But they are all relaxation CDs. You want these." The answer was blunt. " No Luther, I never bring home trash, only money if I find it in the trash."
On the positive side, Robert got to drive the truck and never had to get out, as Luther was looking for "useful stuff" as he worked at the back, emptying cans.

Mar-A-Lago: Looking at his Monday schedule of continuing meetings and lists of people to look at, Donald Trump empowered his transition team to fill in any Cabinet posts that were turned down and other lower posts reporting to him with Blue Meanies.

Meat Puppets CD in Store Comes Close To Selling
Kansas City -- A CD (there for the past six years) in the strip mall store that buys books and media has come out of the case to reorganize the racks, but this week the one and only Meat Puppets CD came out for a whole five minute outing. A customer had some ten 1980s CD's selected, including the Meat Puppets item. The bearded man walked around the store and eventually bought all the CDs, except the Meat Puppets one, left on top of the rack roughly around the M section.

I had to look that up. If I post my blog other places, that toast is part of the blog intro. It's not a new one.

It was one of the better ones. Poking fun at two religions and the odd things forbidden.
