does Homer deny that you need to sign the book when you vote in PA.....and that your signature of record is right there in the book.....
I don't deny it. I'm actually a little concerned that the 95 year old poll taker make take issue with me as my signatures do vary slightly at times. Yes, in a lot of ways PA is defintely stuck in the 1950's.

Alternately, you have a vagina and you could use that instead. Either way... It's best if you use both.

Oh, for goodness sakes, it was an example. Does one need to be completely literal to break you of your bad habits? How'd you know that even referred to YOUR children? Answer: you didn't. I simply led you to a point where you drew that conclusion based on what was in your head, not mine. This is how political campaigns work: they supply you with a simple and predictable path by which you will inevitably reach the conclusion they want you to, as I just did. You have a brain, now use it.

Anything else is the snakeoil drippings of mere phat crayon kiddie framertics.

Fred wasn't actually alone in his box, just outside lay a Sonotube with Fred's only human friend. It was a fallen Catholic priest, Paddy O'Riley, who had been stripped of his vestments years ago but who still wore his dirty white collar and was the Father Confessor for these lonely, dissolute men in the alley.

Father O'Riley had only become a Priest because he had been abused as a boy. He was small and weighed barely 110 pounds even now. He was a hairlip but had a way with words nonetheless and this glibness had allowed him to pass for a young man well into his fifties.

In the confessional no one was aware of his deformity, not his physical one nor his spiritual one. Father O'Riley could no more change his destiny than any of the other men in the alley, he was designed to abuse others and then feel guilty about it. He was Catholic in this, and though he knew it was the Devil who drove him, he also invariably assumed it was God who had made him so.

Soon to released as a major motion picture:
"FRED'S WORLD". Rated "P" for pathetic.

THE DEBIL wrote:
Hannibal Keisterwitz, aka, "Fred," sat in his apartment with the shades drawn down and the lights off. He didn't really have a choice about the lights, because he lived in a Downy Toilet Paper box in an alley and he really didn't have windows or shades, just a slit cut in the side of the box with a paper towel pasted over it.
Hannibal had stolen an I-pad several weeks ago and every morning he'd take it down to the shelter to charge the batteries. He no longer ate, or bathed, or spoke, he simply would take the machine and charge it, then return to his big box in the alley and type.
For some reason, Fred could no longer relate to other people face to face so this was his sole means of interfacing with the world.
He'd found Topix very early on and had developed relationships there that, in his tortured mind, seemed almost real. It was as if he could be anyone he wanted to be, a successful billionaire, a decorated veteran, anyone, and he had "friends there too. Real friends, people whom he would never see and who would never see him in his box, alone, and frightened, and hungry.
For Fred, his stolen computer was the last link he had with the physical world and as the hunger and the loneliness took hold of him he began to forget there even was a physical world. Fred discovered that the keys of the machine had become sticky. Each time he touched one it would resist when he went to lift a finger to touch the next.
(How's this working for you, Homer? Would you like me to re-plot it?)
BRAVO!
