The Only Animal?

August 2, 2005

“Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are, and what they ought to be.”

-William Hazlitt

That is almost, but not entirely, true. Platipussies are struck with the difference too, but most people pay little heed to this fantastic and wonderful marsupial. So, it’s up to us, and the Platipussies, to enjoy this weird and wonderful world Eris entertains us with on a daily basis.

Hail Eris!
