I just heard a knock on the door and before I could say "enter",
a family of cows walked in, positioned themselves as for a family
photo, then had their latest offspring recite a speech while the
other two children strumming a tune on their udders:
    / the reason that every major university \
    | maintains a department of mathematics  |
    | is that it's cheaper than              |
    \ institutionalizing all those people.   /
            \   ^__^
             \  (oo)\_______
                (__)\       )\/\
                    ||----w |

No, honestly, it really happened. And I am also just the messenger.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
