It’s all in how you say it

I ran into a funny today.  I run into funnies all the time, but this one especially struck me.  I was cruising the Devshed php forum for answers on Paypal IPN and ran into this tag.

“Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony! Well, but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you! I mean, if I went ’round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away!”

Sometimes things just strike you funny, as this did me.
