Identity Theft: We Are the Walrus
How many times has this happened to you? You’re in Paris taking a brief nap at your zoo job and a walrus, who looks uncannily like you, steals your keys, locks you in the cage and puts on all of your clothes. Then, adding insult to injury, he proceeds to impersonate you, not only at your job, fooling other animals (who, incidentally, are not fond of his care and handling of them) but in the bosom of your home with your own wife and children who are totally misled by his wiles. Zut alors!!!!!
Then the upstart walrus makes a fatal mistake. Instinctively lunging for the fish on the dinner table, triggers the family’s concern. Could this really be the behavior of our cher papa??!! Meanwhile, you are still napping, unaware that the entire universe you had known and loved had been turned upside down and inside out. All because of a upstart walrus’s temerity and cheek. Of course, in the end he’s found out, returns to the sanctity of his sanctuary yet is not even punished for his transgressions. Quelle domage!!
How many times has it happened that life has thrown you a curve like the one depicted in the document below? If the answer is never . . . just wait. There is a walrus in everyone’s life. Oooh goo goo choo.
