Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


The fey creatures who live inside my 21-inch flat screen have assured me that my websurfing will not leave me irreversibly addlepated as I once feared, but that this activity will in fact make me a happier person, insofar as it will imbue me with sufficient banner blindness to ignore anything that could disturb my kef. (by Rudi)



The techies all say

It’s become quite fey

To ignore that ad --

Banner blindness a fad,

So be campy and cool,

Not an addlepated fool,

Don’t follow the rule,

Be in kef with no drool.
