Extra, Extra, Read All About It! The Great Pumpkin Has Arrived!

Great Scott! You know what I just realised?

Charles M. Schulz, knew it all along. He predicted the outcome to this year’s US presidential election! 

So as America welcomes its new elected President, the world holds its breath – what wine should be served to pumpkin soup? What music best fits the world’s end? Pink Floyd’s The Wall? You know, as in “we don’t need no education”? Or more like Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds, for the “ULLLLLLAAAAAA” we’re about to hear? 

Question after questions,  but, soon they’ll all be answered, all the scientific questions propelling us to evolve so far, all in the new US history books, soon in your child’s Rucksack – consisiting of six pages. One for each day of creation. Yay! That means less time spent on homeworks and more time for burning books! 

The world is not like a Hollywood blockbuster you say. Or is it? 

In Planet Of The Apes, Zaius, the orange ape

“was a statesman who lived in Ape City during the latter half of the 40th century. He was a leading member of the Ape National Assembly, and served a dual role in ape society as Minister of Science in charge of advancing ape knowledge and also as Chief Defender of the Faith. He saw no contradiction between his two roles but in the end he chose to emphasize the blind faith of the ape religion and traditions over the scientific suggestions of the chimpanzees, preferring a stagnant, imperfect, faith-based ape culture that kept humans in check, to the open, scientific, human-curious one proposed by Cornelius and Zira’s generation.” ( from http://planetoftheapes.wikia.com/wiki/Zaius_(APJ) ) we’ll see.

The US voters made their choice, just like the British with Brexit. Devolving instead of evolving. Après moi le déluge, instead of ´onipa’a! 

Unfortunatly their decisions affect us all. So long, and thanks for all the fish! 

And on that bombshell – goodnight
