In the U.S. election of 1796, the President of the U.S. Philosophical Society (Jefferson) ran against the founder of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (Adams). The most popular musician around that time was Ludwig Van.
Looking back from the age of Trump, Clinton and Bieber, it's clear that things have gone to shit to an extent that hasn't been seen since Rome fell. I don't want to labour the point, but if standards continue to decline at this rate for another couple of centuries, the President of the United States would be literally a chimp, and music would be more hideous than any yowling yet produced by man or beast.
Obviously, life won't get that bad. I'm not saying that things will stop getting worse, but pace of decline has to slow.

We wouldn't elect an actual chimpanzee, Hutton. Stop dabbling in hyperbole!
Well, Jefferson used his slaves the same way Woody Allen used his Orgasmatron. And Beethoven was a German. Not sure the trend is entirely one of consistent decline as you suggest, Harry. Certainly the chimps are having a good laugh right now...
I have advised a number of chimps against running for president. "Your speeches may go down well, but your press conferences would be a disaster" I tell them. An alpha chimp will attack anyone who asks him a impertinent question. The orang-utans are pretty happy right now, but I'm telling them not to count their chickens.
Gorilla Banasas, in your Nov 30 post titled 'Pleading Innocence', you make reference to The Jackson Five and seem to suggest that the majority of this singing troupe had at some time had sexual relations with a chimp. Can you explain how you came to this idea? Surely not on the basis of the Jacksons' skin colour? Mai Non! Sol Kashberg
Sol, you great ninny, you should leave comments for the gorilla on his own blog! Can you imagine how worthless you've made Harry feel by commenting on another blogger's post in his own back yard? This was one of his better posts too - possibly his best effort since 2012.
I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid,Get Your Ex Back, You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
Mr. S. Dickus: Sorry to hear of the Hutton seepage. As for the large white area, it may appear to be empty space but in fact(oid) it is a monochromatic, symbolic representation of the state of abject terror one experiences when faced with the fear that one will miss a street sign and not be accepted into the elite club of non-robots. Fear of failure can translate into a blinding snow storm in which everything appears to be a large white hankerchief. Your kindness is, however, appreciated and falls as the gentle rain.
