In a forest a fox bumps into a little rabbit, and says, "Hi,
junior, what are you up to?"
        "I'm writing a dissertation on how rabbits eat foxes," said the
rabbit.
        "Come now, friend rabbit, you know that's impossible!"
        "Well, follow me and I'll show you."  They both go into the
rabbit's dwelling and after a while the rabbit emerges with a satisfied
expression on his face.
        Comes along a wolf.  "Hello, what are we doing these days?"
        "I'm writing the second chapter of my thesis, on how rabbits
devour wolves."
        "Are you crazy?  Where is your academic honesty?"
        "Come with me and I'll show you."  As before, the rabbit comes
out with a satisfied look on his face and a diploma in his paw.
Finally, the camera pans into the rabbit's cave and, as everybody
should have guessed by now, we see a mean-looking, huge lion sitting
next to some bloody and furry remnants of the wolf and the fox.

The moral: It's not the contents of your thesis that are important --
it's your PhD advisor that really counts.

what i heard, in the last two days, of the last days

gouge out eyes, the women are whores, mine the towns, bomb the fields, the
jews are coming, the jews are going, i tasted all the protocols, i saw it
with my running feet, i dream you jews, i dream you women, i dream you
children, i read it on the internet, i saw it in the newspaper, i heard it
on the radio, i touched it on the television, i tasted every jew in sight,
i smelled each and every woman, blood is filth and pain, jews are filth
and pain, women are filth and pain, they're marked in the middle of the
month, walk the streets of any city, look around you, it's purim, haid,
passover, there's danger in the streets, i can hear the danger, i can hear
the danger -:everywhere, they're killing children, jews need young and
kosher meat, five-year-olds are good for books, books are a new and newer
language, they've got it figured in the book, they do their figures in the
book, they're eaten by the jews, i smelled it on the television, i touched
it on the internet, clean yourself with stones, make sure they're three or
more and always odd, die beneath the stones, jews, you're eating children,
look at little hugh of lincoln, you're teeth are filled with others'
flesh, all women are filthy, all women are unclean, jewish men bleed once
a month, they hide everywhere -:tie up the natural blood of women, the
jews are eating children again; seclude the children and the women, tie up
the natural blood of women, it's purim time, it's passover, it's haid,
she's filthy as the filthy jews, they're tying up women, they're tying up
children to eat them - they do that for their filthy rites, i read it on
the radio, i heard it on the newspaper -::

oh daughters sons of blood, there is no place to flee on earth, beneath
the rain of bombs, there is nowhere left to go, everyone will kill thee!
oh daughters sons of blood, there is no place to flee on earth, beneath
the rain of bombs, there is nowhere left to go, everyone will kill thee!
