I’d rather eat babies than get taken in by this joke!

BREAKING NEWS:  Ben Franklin is often credited (ie. blamed) for Daylight Savings Time.  Until this very moment I didn’t know he was writing satire at the time!

Franklin, that silly fellow, is up in Founding Father heaven laughing his ass off that we took his suggestion of “saving daylight” seriously.

Maybe this situation isn’t quite as disturbing as Ireland adopting The Swift Diet, but I respect Mr. Franklin way too much to think he’s happy about creating an instrument of torture.

    Unfortunately, ignorant people are less tasty than the informed. OTOH, I bet the few folks here are all delicious!
