Pepe takes a correspondence course in Int'l law while roT makes some Dum-dums.

"I ask President Obama to do the right thing. The United States must renounce its witch hunt against WikiLeaks," Assange said.
"Get a grill and some charcoal," roT, said.

He ain't free yet. Check out the last frames of The Sting.

Perhaps Assange's supported should take a hint from Nabokov ;)

cheers, A. Leverkühn

"There are events, strange happenings, that strike
The mind as emblematic. They are like
Lost similes adrift without a string,
Attached to nothing. Thus that northern king,
Whose desperate escape from prison was
Brought off successfully only because
Some forty of his followers that night
Impersonated him and aped his flight -

He never would have reached the western coast had
not a fad spread among his secret supporters,
romantic, heroic daredevils, of impersonating the
fleeing king. They rigged themselves out to look like
him in red sweaters and red caps, and popped up here and there, completely bewildering the revolutionary police. Some of the pranksters were much younger than the King, but this did not matter since his pictures in the huts of mountain folks and in the myopic shops of hamlets, where you could buy worms, ginger bread and zhiletka blades, had not aged since his coronation. A charming cartoon touch was added on the famous occasion when from the terrace of the Kronblik Hotel, whose chairlift takes tourists to the Kron glacier, one merry mime was seen floating up, like a red moth, with a hapless, and capless, policeman riding two seats behind him in dream-slow pursuit. It gives one pleasure to add that before reaching the staging point, the false king managed to escape by climbing down one of the pylons that supported the traction cable (see also notes to lines 149 and 171).

Traction cable? That's a cosh curve, right?

a catenary

Cosh is a catenary if the scales on the coordinates are chosen right.

Liver, about Na-boob-kov: It is a tale. Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing.
