The Two Little Pigs (from MySpace)

Current mood: allegorical

Category: Life

Once upon a time there were two little pigs. One was named Snobbery, and the other was named Stupidity. They lived in a virtual sty created by Pork Chop, an artist and web designer who had too much time on his hands. He created a place for pigs who were a cut above, shall we say, to congregate and converse - a porcine version of the Algonquin Round Table.

Sad to say, it wasn't long before Snobbery and Stupidity drove away most of the other pigs. Snobbery could not bear to be alone with Stupidity. His posts grew shorter, and he posted less frequently.

Pork Chop continued to provide a forum for Stupidity and two or three remaining pigs. And since Stupidity - like nature - abhors a vacuum, she posted more and more and more and more frequently. When no one responded, she replied to her own posts.

Come to think of it, Stupidity now has an elegant, upscale, free website, hosted and maintained largely for her benefit.

Maybe she's not so stupid after all.
