I just happened to notice this at the bottom of the issue and started cracking up... but seriously... the rest of the issue was quite good too... the drug article was quite hilarious. Keep up the good work!
I DIDN'T SAY EVERY SINGLE SYLLABLE, NO, BUT PRETTY MUCH, YES:
William Mark writes (from the organization of the purple rabbit runners, no relation to Eddie Rabbit):
CoN: platu verata necktie.
I have been presented a challenge. Something that makes no sense on the surface, yet does. Maybe it's the word "necktie." Seemingly English, while the first two words are gibberish.
First we do a search for the first word, platu. Cool sounding, at least in my mind, which is probably getting the pronunciation all-wrong. The search turns up many references to a sailboat called platu. So the first word must be something about a sailboat.
Second word, verata. Having a v in it makes it interesting too, since I feel it is not used nearly enough. A web search turns up various things, and using my superior intellect (I'm smarter than the rats) I have deduced that it refers to a construction consulting company.
The third word stands on it's own, referring to an instrument of torture modern man is sometimes forced to endure for periods of approximately 9 hours a day. For enduring this, he is often rewarded financially.
Sailboat construction necktie. How is CoN anything like an instrument of torture worn while building a boat?
AT LEAST HE'S NOT ASKING US ABOUT THAT QUOTE AT THE END
IGNORE the HYPE rants:
Great issue of CoN and now I offer my 2 cents worth (take them with a grain of salt)...

There is a segment though of the casual user demographicthat doesn't think at all.
Just as there is a segment of the casual devil's advocate demographic that doesn't think at all either...<g>
I'm not a drug user but I consider myself informed. There is a whole lot more to the legalize hemp movement than spoiled white middle class kids.Check out http://www.capnasty.org/taf/issue7/elkindex.htm and http://www.capnasty.org/taf/issue7/hempindx.htm for some indepth info on the subject.
It gets them writing smug little essays and keeps themoff the streets.
hmmm...like writing "Drug Underdose" kept you off the street? hehehe
I could add a pretentious quote about opium by Marx here,but I won't.
Good. Because the quote would be completely out of context - but you already knew that.
So there you go - time to get your collective C.C.C.P. nutsacks flippin' in a frenzy of dickplay ... or just take my comments as a devil's advocate type of rable rousing for my own amusement....<g>
