No, I'm not of European extraction. Mom was Friesian and Dad was Breton, so
that makes me of Celtic extraction. (Anglo-Saxons and Goths have been chasing
Celts around for millennia, and since the French renamed the province of
Brittany, they aren't making Bretons anymore.) I've learned never to apologize
(except in jest) because that shows weakness, and gets aggressors aroused.
Nobody knows where the Celts came from, so for all I know, my prehistoric
ancestors were a lost tribe of homo heidelbergensis monkey-fuckers. Ask
Eliezer about the wandering Semites. I suspect they're the most completely
assimilated of any group, since their menfolk have been wiped out at
intervals. J. R. like uploads, J. R. like to watch Tom Ray play with the
