Covering your baseness

Advice from the Universal Donor:

Don't write anything that reveals how small-minded, ignorant or bigoted you are — it will come back and bite you on the ass if you ever pursue a career in politics. You have two options for your racist diatribes:
  • Write stuff like that in a special pink diary with a heart-shaped golden clasp that you can lock with a special key (also heart-shaped) that goes on a delicate chain around your neck. Keep the diary itself under your pillow. Once a week, try spritzing it with your favorite perfume to keep it smelling fresh!
  • Create a special other web page under a pseudonym. If you can't think of a good pseudonym for your alter ego, consult the chart in the footnote below.

So I say, "screw 'em."

I have to believe that our old friend Chisel A. Arthur would agree.
