A Man Listened to Proclamations

A man standing in the electronics section of
a giant, all-purpose department store watched

one of the giant, super-intelligent TVs and
listened to the proclamations of the person

whose face was on all the giant and not so
giant but nevertheless super-intelligent TVs

in the department. Some TVs were mute, some
on low volume but the one the man watched

was loud enough for people to hear the pro-
clamations. When the person on the TV was

done speaking, the man watching simply stated,
“He is the dumbest duck in the pond,” and walked

away. Another man, standing near, thought about
the ponds in the parks of Phoenix and how dirty

the ponds were, filled with duck dung and said
to his wife, “And dirty, too.”
