What I Learned Over Spring Break

Dr. Seuss apparently believed that Soviet communism differed from American capitalism no more than eating one’s bread butter-side-down differs from eating it butter-side-up.

I believe that’s what Allah would refer to as nuance.


  1. Didja notice Amazon is trying to bundle-sell that book with “The Lorax” which is essentially bright-colored Al Gore speeches in narrative form?

  2. What was the Al Gore
    Any why was it there?
    And why was it lifted and taken somewhere from the far end of Washington where the hippie-grass grows?
    The old Bush-ler still rules here.
    Ask him. He knows.

  4. Reminds me of some Soviet humor from the Brezhnev era:

    Russian #1: Comrade, what is the difference between capitalism and communism?

    Russian #2: Capitalism is the system in which man is exploited by his fellow man. But in communism, it’s the other way around.
