#%!!& Pinter wins $%#!! Nobel Prize

Please excuse the fake obscenities, but I thought it only fitting to celebrate Harold Pinter's Nobel Prize for anti-American politics with some potty mouth.

However, if you are bothered by ACTUAL obscenities, do not read further, as I reprint below one of Pinter's poems in protest of the Iraq war. As you finish each stanza, you should imagine those cartoon guys from the Guiness commercials yelling "Brilliant!"

[Mea culpa: I am a huge fan of the film of Pinter's play Betrayal. The three leads -- Jeromy Irons, Ben Kingsley, and Patricia Hodge -- actually are BRILLIANT. Hodge, particulary, has not gotten the credit she deserves on this side of the Atlantic]

Hallelullah!
It works.
We blew the shit out of them.

We blew the shit right back up their own ass
And out their fucking ears.

It works.
We blew the shit out of them.
They suffocated in their own shit!

Hallelullah.
Praise the Lord for all good things.

We blew them into fucking shit.
They are eating it.

Praise the Lord for all good things.

We blew their balls into shards of dust,
Into shards of fucking dust.

We did it.

Now I want you to come over here and kiss me on the mouth.


"Brilliant!!"
