Thinking Chaos, Thinking Fences

This is for those who descend into the code
and make their room a fridge for Superman

I just discovered (or, perhaps, rediscovered, I've got infonesia) this site which creates a surreal found poem from any URL. Here's what it generated for my site (and here's the code that does the dirty work):

So, I've pretty much ignored all of the sundry entertainers who have come out for or against the war in Iraq.

The irony of this Boycott Hollywood site is that, despite its name, they only want to boycott liberal, anti-war entertainers. They're totally okay with all of the conservative celebrities holding forth on foreign policy (which reminded me of this Farkin' hilarity from the other day). They're not keen on the French either.

Truth continues to be stranger than fiction. I was pretty sure this was a parody, and looked around for evidence of such, but the URL doesn't lie:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2003, as Loyalty Day. I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance. I also call upon government officials to display the flag of the United States on all government buildings on Loyalty Day.
