There is no cat. Einstein's radio.

Google offered this quotation on my home page today:
You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
- Albert Einstein

It seemed appropriate to the theme of today's previous blog posts.

Podcasting is what happens when you put parts of the cat in a time machine.

Given that, I can explain the economy like this:

You see, the economy is kind of a very, very long skunk. The politicians and the bankers pinch its nose and poke it in the eye and get it all pissed off. The American taxpayers and workers are then given the job of standing on the other side of the skunk and holding onto its tail so that it can't turn around and spray those who deserve it.
