Snarky penguin out-snarked

I must admit it: Night Light has out-snarked the snark-meister with their Modest Proposal for Ending Burden placed upon the Young by the Elderly. After all, while Jonathon Swift's modest proposal in the 18th Century only suggested that poor Irish children be used for sustenance by the hungry Irish populance, cooking techniques have come quite a ways in the 250 years since then. Why, I bet you could make an excellent stew or casserole out of a 75-year-old dowager, and those 70-year-old knobby-kneed golf freaks, while undoubtedly stringy, would most certainly have enough quality meat to make Kitty or Rover happy (why should we waste good horse meat on such purposes, anyhow?!).

Yes, indeed, there IS a solution to the burden placed upon the young by the elderly, and only a master of snark could have channelled Jonathon Swift to such extent. R.J. Eskow, I do salute you!

  1. Did not know it was possible for the flippered one to be out snarked.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
