removing one word from the forest vocab.

Postby baloo » Mon Mar 06, 2006 2:07 pm

"open decks, open windows, open events, open talks, open 1KW soundsystem, tea for two, art for you, games on comfy couches, crayons, coffee, cakes, movies, guns, and music too. "

the police arrived today and in their infinite wisdom deemed it wrong to have the word "guns" in our shpeel.
Do we appease the law enforcement officers?
I think we should.
Or amend it with a disclaimer explaining the guns reference was just a joke.
The police seemed very serious. :?:

Maybe it could work? But it will be a kaleidoscopic blend of mysterious shadows and rainbow hued-dreams seen through compassionate tears.

even better, we should specify the type of firearms permitted, ak47, colt45, kalashnikov assault rifle, grenade launcher, intercontinental ballistic missiles...

An AK47 is a Kalashnikov.

Why do I know this? Maybe I should resign my post at the Forest in shame.

The police must be joking.

guns aren't funny.
Really, they're not.
Jokes are funny, jokes about guns might be funny, guns are not funny.

Lets just change it.
The police came over to discuss more than just this point.
Lets not make the situation harder for the forest.
We delete one word.......-so what?

If you really love the word guns, get a tatoo.

Why appease idiocy?
There's principles and prescedents at stake here, I'd be livid if it wasn't so petty.
Fuck it, tell 'em it was a typo and we meant 'gnus'.
Gnus are funny.

the government has no right to tell anyone what they can and cannot publish. to do so is to censor in the truest sense of the word and when you censor words you censor thoughts etc. It is stupid and petty. But we should either put the word back or post the letter asking us to take it down. Fact is some newspapers might be very interested by this.

what they have done is illegal and we should stick to our metaphoric guns.
