I've found a cure for chickenpox!
We must try like the dickens
To get rid of all chickens!
I guess we have here a paradox.

    oh, wes vogler is so subtle.

    do oxen eat chicken? i've never seen one drive up to KFC.

    i have seen a video of a hippo eating a large (enough) mammal in africa.

    I am sorry to say I had to go to the notes too. Not quite sure whether the failing is on my part or you stretching things a bit. I think I would have used paradocs at the end (Report) Reply
