If you did the latter, it would soon become a meaningless mantra,
and lull you into an altered state of consciousness. Ooop-aah!

What I really like about tendencies to censorship - as opposed to
trenchant criticism - is the implicit belief that the would-be
censors believe they are impervious to the evil influences
emanating from whatever limb of Satan they have discerned, but the
rest of us peons, churls, plebs, braceros, rude mechanicals & serfs
lack the moral fibre, or access to top-quality garlic, to withstand

Reminds of my old friend Lord Birdwood's stepmother, who was vastly
against naughtiness of all sorts. Back in 1969 Lady B. became
incensed about the nude revue "Oh! Calcutta!" and took herself off
to the Roundhouse to see it - four times: first to gain a general
impression, second to observe the dancing, third to listen to the
song lyrics, and fourth to confirm that her unkind notions of the
show were correct. Thus satisfied, she called for its closure at
every opportunity.

My only complaint about "The X-Files" is that there isn't enough
shagging in it.
