Hermit, whose mind has never been great, has long opined that those
who state principled and supported disagreements with his pompous
hemorrhidal pronunciamentoes suffer from mental defectiveness; it is

unoriginal MerdeMade has appropriated from him. It does not work any
better when she attempts to employ it.
