I've been doing nothing for a few years. I'm just now getting good at it. This is not fair. I may be the best do-nothing ever.

Nothing is better than eternal happiness.
A ham sandwich is better than nothing.

Therefore, a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness.
QED.

A tiny bug flew into my cabbage salad the other day. Upon closer inspection I noticed that he was wearing a very tiny, very ornate crown. That's right, I had Gnat King Coleslaw.

Not a graduate, more of a gradual. I'll get there eventually.

Wonder why he left his dacha -

Why does no one ever pull a hat out of a rabbit? That I would pay to see.

How many rabbits could be induced to swallow a hat, I wonder?

If you make the hat out of berry flavored yogurt drops, it'll vanish lickety-split.

*TRUE FACT: NEVER pick up a rabbit by the ears; damage will surely result.

I never thought about an actual edible hat. I suppose that could work.

Actually, you shouldn't think. None of us should. It mostly results in headaches. I think.
