                             I want so little
             But expect so much.
                  —Michael Malinowicz

“Your discipline is charming,”
said the lady as the heater’s
fan blew the apartment’s

electrical circuit.  “Or do
apartments blow fuses
instead,” he thought,

“which, in turn,
annihilate circuits?”
And, furthermore,

“Fuses or fuse?  Circuit
or circuits.”  And,
later still, while the

crickets were chirping
at the circus: “I really
blew it this time,”

said the lady
blowing her nose
into yesterday’s funnies.
