moon is a toon

Looked out the window last night and gasped. The big yellow moon hung low over the middle suburbs and looked almost too full on to believe. So close-up there seemed to be some sort of face, and it suddenly seemed familiar. Who was it - which pop culture cartoon character had suddenly superimposed itself on her imagination? Johnnie Walker? Dandy Hams? Icpota? Who is that man with the moonface and the small white moustache and the top hat and tails? boynton mused. Luckily her housemate swiftly summoned the answer...

(Related: earlier musings on the moon when things weren't quite so corporate, and the bloggin was easy)

That's the thing about being a Boynton. She is free to be a person. Whereas an I is kind of stuck with the thing..

Thedge, I dare you to make sense of that.

Obscurantism is the first, last and only refuge of those who think outside the square and level playing field whilst pushing the envelope.

That way lunacy lies. (I know, I've seen the polygraph print out.)

Seen you and raised you a monkey.

I can't find a button to type backwards...

oh...having scanned the text "close-up" I have now added a missing hyphen. This may make it read a tad less obscure.

Ah yes, "Boynton the Obscure", one of the finest hyphenically challenged novels that Thomas never quite got around to writing.

Government is too big and too important to be left to the politicians.
