Here is how things really happen. (Paul Krassner-Counterpunch)

Stan and the VolcanoWhy Firing the General Was an Act of God

Paul Krassner

The volcano in Iceland was considered an Act of God.

Smoke from the volcano caused countless flights to be canceled.

The Rolling Stone correspondent was stuck in Paris.

Embedded there, he hung around with talkative drinkers.

They revealed stuff while forgetting it was being told to a reporter.

He wrote in his article what they had said.

The fact checkers verified those statements.

The article was shown to Barack Obama.

Whether he fired McChrystal or didn’t, Republicans would criticize.

The president fired the general, ultimately due to an Act of God.

Like dat.

Bet on it.

The way it really works.

The single concept that adequately explains the continuing survival of the human species.

The entire universe is a multidimensional, constantly interweaving web of events. It is “intelligent” on levels that dwarf the minds of the greatest among us. Listening to the news is like looking at a cartoon of a sunset, an iPhone photo of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling.

Paul knows.

So should we.
