In praise of lead poisoning

It would have been good for me to have had lead poisoning as a child.

I had a bunch of Matchbox Cars. When I was a little kid -- like three or four -- I put them in my mouth and whatnot. Just one of those fucking things. Kids stick toys in their mouths.

Now there's a Hasbro recall on lead-tainted toys, and for most kids, that's a good thing. Most kids are halfwits, and because of lead poisoning, those kids grow up to be that much dumber. As adults, they are labeled "soccer fan" and "Republican."

Myself, I would have benefited from lead poisoning. I like to imagine how awesome it would be if I were just another tall, cool, handsome dude who could skip his ass all over town and not get annoyed during tickle parties. Sadly, I'm a fucking genius, so when I go to tickle parties I stand there thinking about foreign policy and whose tickle is the best analogy to the Algeciras Treaty.

I wish I had lead poisoning as a kid, so that I wouldn't be cursed with a brain that makes me think about such things. In the event that I suffered lead poisoning, I'm grateful for it, because it kept me from being that much smarter, and worrying about these things even more.

The things I put in my mouth make me thing about other things besides the Algeciras Treaty.

It was a very, very difficult weekend. No parties, no tickle parties. I want to go eat a bunch of lead.

Cock D: I like saying harsh things about soccer. It's a standing practice. You apparently weren't around for the World Cup, when every fifth post had a title like, "American soccer fans: Retarded, or sexually confused?"

dmbmbeg: Both someone to make fun of and someone ridiculing me. It's a two-way street, you see.

evil girl: Tell me about it. Why aren't you commenting as much? Low post quality? dmbmeg and her minions?

dmbmeg II: Tell me about it.

blythe: I had mercury for lunch today!
