Default Rats show the forces behind capitalism

This is bound to be a famous quote in the futu

"We all have a rat inside, but some feed it while others try to tame
it"

That future will come when we all start living like rats.

Hey Gemini, there's some greater threat than feral cats and crazy
ladies on a "charity" mission...

It's perfectly understood by a powerful symbol: A DRY WATER FOUNTAIN
WITH HOMELESS SITTING AROUND. Once upon a time, a fountain symbolized
a sense of CIVILIZATION, ART AND COMMUNITY. Now the emphasis has been
shifted FROM COMMUNITY TO GATED COMMUNITY.

My community has such a dry fountain with the homeless while the
people have turned indifferent to it all. Those who can afford it move
to gated communities and live in anonymity. It's "trendy."

I guess we do live in the last days of civilization, and in that sense
the Christians are right. They are part of the problem!

Anyway here's to beauty and hope...

Cheers!


There's also opposition to the Fat Cats (not to be confused with the
kitty cats) coming not from the mice and rats, but from the colorful
parakeets. They are not coming from the underground, but from the
wilderness...

Parakeets have a special message. They are unhappy indoors like us,
and explode in cheerfulness the minute they see the sun and the trees.

All those messages are translated by me, the Wise Tibetan Monkey, but
the deeper messages are held by Buddha Reincarnate (my girlfriend
doesn't like the name, but I must emphasize its similarities). "Her
Highness the Monk Parrot" is really an example of civilized behavior
and wisdom.

She says something is coming soon...

Here's a recent interview with her...

Q: It is said you are a "foragers"... What's that?

A: It means something equivalent to "hunter-gatherers" in humans, but
your race is too stupid to interpret that to mean you must go out and
do something.

Q: Why you spin the wheel like mice?

A: For the same reason above. Since we can't fly because we are in the
cage, we must do something.

Q: Are you a Monk or a Priest?

A: I'm a Monk, descendant of Buddha, not a priest of dubious sexual
reputation.

Q: What do you recommend for humanity?

A: "Burn the calories!" she said in her squeaky voice.
