On a lighter note: A Man Said to the Universe
« on: March 16, 2012, 12:30:05 PM »
You know the classic Stephen Crane poem (circa 1899)

Quote
A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
"A sense of obligation."


This has been kicking around in my head lately, with variations. There have been a few "heavy" threads lately, and I have wanted to balance it out a little with something on a lighter note. Please add your own variations!

Modern Version

A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"Your call is very important to us," said the universe.

Selective Indifference

Lady Gaga said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"I can't hear you," said the universe.
"I'm listening to Adele on my iPod."

The Tables Are Turned

The universe said to a man:
"Sir, I exist!"
"However," replied the man,
"The fact has not created in me
"A sense of exploration."



If bad things happen to other people, it's karma. If bad things happen to me, it's kismat!

Inevitable Reponse

A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"Yes," said the universe,
"and there's already a thread on DC about it"

A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"Yes," sighed the universe,
"you're Renegade, pissed"

The condensed version of the original:

A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"So?" replied the universe

A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"That's ma'am," said the universe,
"Now go stand in the corner till you learn some respect!"
