WARNING! Timely personal anecdote of life in the rural American South:

Saw that last night... distributed it immediately to group of local
politicos and watchdogs who got on my case last week because--get

A good church lady (isn't that precious?) got all bent out of
shape because she followed links from the home page of a local
child to a guestbook entry from another local child who posted
his Geocities home page link subsequently finding herself smackdab
in the middle of the Church of the Subgenius. I do not think she
took the time to absorb the irony there...

I told them I would not remove the offending guestbook entry that
led (some eight links away) to the Church of the Subgenius site,
which was an internet icon of some merit, and further, to warn
Mrs. ChurchLady to be careful online... If she followed links
too far out from the town's official website she would fall off
the end of the internet right into the lap of Bob.

On this day only, I have a different snippet running thru my head:
