GUEST,Futwick BS: Building a Mudcat's Cradle (25) BS: Building a Mudcat's Cradle 27 Jan 13

So do you think Mudcat is a karass or a granfalloon? Are the members bound together for a cause or just a meaningless association of stuppas? If you thought of Mudcat as a karass but after some reflection are forced to conclude that it is a granfalloon, how does that affect your continued participation?

If we, as a whole, decide Mudcat is a granfalloon, could we make it into a karass if we desired? How would we do that? How do we each become a finger in the cradle? The tenets of Bokononism would hold that we must have two wampeters--one waxing and one waning. We express these wampeters in the form of foma. Foma are harmless fictions that help us get through life. Foma are written in the form of calypsos.

So what foma do you use to cope with life? Express them as calypso. Just a couple of lines. You can add more later.

I am the eyes and ears of the Lord
I am all the universe can afford
And when I go someday to my grave
All my data must be saved

Although I wrote it with a different melody, you can sing it to the tune of that old Jimmy Soul song.

Now all you griots, join in! Here we go!
