-FUPPETS- For Readers XXIX

Twenty-Nine. In Roman Numerals, that is XXIX. Of all the methods of communication available to humans, -FUPPETS- praises the written word above all. The amount and depth of information available from written text is overwhelming, especially to those sad fucks that never read jack shit. It is a sad state indeed when alliterate bastards out breed the literate ones.

-FUPPETS- does not think that these bastiches will ensure their children have books to grow up with. That means yet another generation will grow up with easily molded minds, controlled by the assholes. All you literate folk out in the world, start makin' babies, damn it! The morons have a head start!
