Voltaire wrote, ”Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”
The Queen, in Lewis Carroll’s book, “Through the Looking Glass,” attempted to convince Alice to believe absurdities. She said, “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six thousand impossible things before breakfast.”
Another fella said, “There’s fifty or sixty beavers on this part of the river.” Nice to know.
They also say you can paint the trees with paint and sand. However, it washes off. Always a catch, and of course one fella had to say to me, “Beavers floss with chicken wire.” Yuk, yuk. So absurd.
