Yes but you see, Dr. Broderick, you have perhaps
*misunderstood* the *spiritual significance* of these
life-fluid pathways (cleverly disguised as "tubes") thru
which spiritual enlightenment and karma are allowed
to flow into this fading temple of the soul. Furthermore,
is there not a verse in the holy scriptures (matthew 5:29,30)
regarding cutting off an offending body part? The proper
*enlightened spirit* understands my religious insistence
upon having the tubes suffuse the seat of my soul, and
also the beheading process. Or if not, well hey, its my
reliiiiigion, I dont haaaaafta explain it, its my inalienable
riiiiight. Right? {8-] spike
