Have you noticed that they always tell you all about what your gift can do,

but they fail to tell you how it's done? He, he,

welcome to the age of the neo-idiot,

where the text-thumbing lead the text-thumbing

off the cliff. (Thumb and dummer.

Did it occur to anybody to send voice mail

(a speculation):

(Remember you saw it here first!)





   Did Albert  von Sachsen-Teschen fall prey to one of FXM's "satyr's" ( = pranks)?

Are the Beak Heads the ultimate insult to the house of Habsburg?
