The Magic Pudding.

Ah shit, the Dwarves are going to get befuddled again.
Lawyers?
Na, Mirkwood, spiders and possibly a racial propensity.

I watched the first Hobbit movie, I'm now watching the second Hobbit movie because of Hermes and his eight Wagnerian double bases.

There is a test you have to pass, this is an old version, the new version is much the same but it's OK to be a poof.

The Asmo approves of the word "poofter" and wishes there were more ways for Him to sneak it into His day-to-day conversations. Not even as a substitute for gay or any such - it just sounds... Exactly the right amount of amusing.

:lol:  Even I, the HAF poofter in residence, found it amusing.

The blame probably lies with The Goblin King (Barry Humphries).

...So apparently, the class differences in the world are increasing and Oxfam has the solution: Tax the rich more.

Will people never learn that when you tax the people who can send the bill forward, then they do? Or that when even the poorest can "easily" afford a product, its price is likely to rise because obviously there is more coin to be had there?

You won't solve poverty by moving money - better Socialists of every stripe have already tried. Free trade. It lifts all boats - and yes, it lifts the bulkier craft far better than straw canoes. Overregulation raises the sea level, while leaving the abovementioned floatation devices firmly anchored to the sea floor. Who will it drown first, you think? Something already barely above the waves, or something big enough to potentially break its anchor chains rather than go down?

...I'm losing control over my own metaphor, so quitting while ahead.

Hey, you were really in the flow with your metaphorin there, got a bit choppy towards the end though.

Asmodean

Yeah... I decided to give it up while it was good. I am kinda' known for giving birth to some pretty-damned-amazing metaphors - then murdering them by tiring them out - all within the same argument. :smilenod:
