Nothing here but words

clear

An oldie (relatively speaking) from The Onion, that most a-peeling of sites:

WASHINGTON—Unable to rest their eyes on a colorful photograph or boldface heading that could be easily skimmed and forgotten about, Americans collectively recoiled Monday when confronted with a solid block of uninterrupted text.

Dumbfounded citizens from Maine to California gazed helplessly at the frightening chunk of print, unsure of what to do next. Without an illustration, chart, or embedded YouTube video to ease them in, millions were frozen in place, terrified by the sight of one long, unbroken string of English words.

"Why won't it just tell me what it's about?" said Boston resident Charlyne Thomson, who was bombarded with the overwhelming mass of black text late Monday afternoon. "There are no bullet points, no highlighted parts. I've looked everywhere—there's nothing here but words."

Nothing but words???!!!??? :-(( WTF????!!! OMG.

Puns about leaks are not allowed. They confuse the youth of today.

If Marie Lloyd were alive today, she would have changed her song, "She sits among the cabbages and leeks" to "She sits among the cabbages and peas".

 Confucius considered that the woman who cooks beans and peas in the same pot is very unhygienic.

Bean & Nothingness
 
 
That woman must have a stirring tale of peas, porridge, pot to piss in.

"Bean & Nothingness"? - As in "human bean"? Look, Joey; Kidneys! Come back here or I'll settle your hash!  - Alan "Master" Bates aka Professor Ben Butley

 Ah! Joan of Arc. Was she the wife of Noah?

Ad Thaliarchum
Or: Ad For Joan of Arc Kidney Beans
Or: An Excellent Adventure On Crete
 
Ha-ha.  That was our favorite line from "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure." We were distressed by Bill & Ted's pronunciation, however, of "Socrates." Lawd only knows how they would have pronounced "Mount Soracte." 
On Noah Count Yours,
Paddy Fermor & General Kreipe
