Son of Jargon

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient
       in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which
                        is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
                   Dr. Theodore Dreissel (Dr. Suess)
