ally. The best way to use them is to cite them -- most people will
find the phrase "militant pedestrian" very funny if you just point it
out to them.
Before the Stockholm congestion tax was passed by referendum, a
liberal tabloid (Expressen) published a column where the young lady
noted the ridiculous notion, still peddled by extreme right wingers,
that being green is just "chlorofyll communism".
You can't make this stuff up, and we should treasure the gems the
ranters give us.
