    I was thinking ‘boo-berry pie’, ‘go to the moovies’, and ‘it was a chew-chew train’, but they all work (although the punning element in ‘I scream’ doesn’t rhyme with the others).

    ‘Boo! meringue pie’ is a rare triple pun; I’d phrase the question as ‘What’s an Australian ghost’s favourite kind of pie?’ for that answer.

    The only thing unrealistic about this is that it’s also too expensive to print different versions for different States, so the new un-woke versions will be the versions sold throughout the country.

    He’s fine, he changed his shirt. He only needs the glasses when he faces his archenemy, Color-Blind-Man!

    The attack on Pearl Harbor was an act of war in itself, so anybody helping with it is waging war on the United States. But offering to help a political candidate with opposition research, even if the campaign later lies about it, is not an act of war. Last I checked, it’s not clear that Trump was in on the cracking of Podesta’s email account or the leaks of DNC emails to Wikileaks, but those aren’t acts of war either, even if they are illegal.

    Hippogriff is right that there are plenty of grounds for impeaching Trump if Congress is interested (and also for prosecuting of some of the people in the campaign if Mueller is interested and Trump doesn’t stop him). But that’s not treason. (And it’s absolutely a fit topic for cute satire; that’s what I come here for!)

    ‘Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.’

    It’s alphabetized immediately after Tom the Dancing Bug, of which it is a rerun.

    But by ‘God is dead’, Nietzche didn’t mean that God does not exist (much less, as you would think if you took it literally, that God used to exist and does no longer). Rather, he took it for granted that God does not exist, and what he meant to express is that God is not believed in (although he used to be). More precisely, the issue is that belief in God is no longer able to give society an absolute standard of morality (whether because people are really atheists, or just because they doubt too much, or even because there are too many different ideas about God, is not that important).

    It is therefore necessary, to avoid nihilistic despair, for people to develop new systems of values, and this is really what Nietzsche was concerned with.
