The Mayor of Mousedom
While out in the garden I came upon this very frustrated fellow. It appears that he is the Mayor of Mousedom and has made up a "Mouse Rule Book" but he can't find his constituents.
"Wherever did they go?" he cried. Whereupon I broke the news to him that they all seemed to have moved inside. He was quite upset as the very first rule says: Do not move inside.
Looking at the "Mouse Rule Book" I couldn't make out one word. "What language is this?" I asked. "Well, certainly not yours. Now send my people back outside right now". Boy was he officious! I can see why they didn't come to his meeting!
"Rule A: Don't. Rule A1: Rule A doesn't exist. Rule A2: Do not discuss the existence or non-existence of Rules A, A1 or A2." - R. D. Laing
