Proprosal: Be Excellent To Each Other

08-04-2004, 06:46
I made up a recent proposal regarding human behavior entitled "Be Excellent To Each Other." In spite of being inspired by the oddball comedy "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure," there's still a strong universal theme at hand which stands as an overall solution more people need to accept about their lives.

Basically, it's a simple incentive for people in society to either maintain or improve the way they behave in a more professional manner, thanks to special classes, without invoking further debate by bringing up political or religious issues. There's no penalty if they don't acknowledge this belief, but there is a lot of encouragement to act otherwise. If this proposal ended up touching enough people, we would notice a definitive improvement in the way we interact with people and their mistakes, and act more efficiently towards it, making for a more productive society.

If you follow the belief that people should be encouraged to act more professionally in the face of conflict, please help support this proposal over at the United Nations and let's continue taking social advancement a step in the right direction.

But with this incentive, there would be no need for all those screaming "talk" shows!


Radical, dude!

A noble gesture indeed. If you were to couple that with "Always beautify that which you have had contact with" ... it would even carry more "Excellence" as a philosophy ;)

Mmmmm, raspberries.

Ummm... no raspberries. But we've got lots of pineapples! Pineapples are good too. Not that there's anything wrong with raspberries. I think we got some imported ones in the store. Ah! Here we go! Raspberries! Raspberries for all!

It used to be Strawberryland until Raspberrybeard the Pirate took over. But after all the chipmunks moved in, our strawberries went extinct. So we grow pineapple now. And mattresses.

I hope that clears things up for you.

As for cranberries...we can probably import them via ship if our gun-toting general wasn't always going postal with random things on the ocean. We'd arrest him, but like I said, he's gun-toting, so it's not like we can get close enough. Eh, but if we leave him alone, he leaves us alone. It's a nice symbiotic relationship. We do have blackberries and blueberries though. And purple berries grow up on Porcupine Peak.

Ho! Raspberryland, Yer troubles are o'er!

The Joccian People have voted tae send you, immediately, 300 mating pairs o' the famed Joccian Fighting Guinea Pigs. The wee beasties cannae stand chipmunks or cats, dogs, elephants, children, wildcats, tigers, et al for that matter, so they'll get rid of them fer ye! Now isn't that a nice thing fer the people tae do fer ye? When they get through the chipmunks, do mak' sure and fence off yer berries so they dinnae start on them, och and the wee pineapples o'course.
