Hmmm . . . the tone here at Framed has ranged from despairing to sad over the last week. But leave it to PZ Myers to make my mood a little lighter. He posted a crank letter he received recently, and while the whole thing is a hoot, one sentence in particular is an absolute gem. As PZ says, "I'll never be able to write like that, not unless I take up a meth-and-steroid cocktail habit."
Eschewing grammar, coherence and rhetorical norms, here is the killer sentence in all its crackpot glory:
It is just very difficult for me to follow the socially "hotpoint" controversies that tend to "crop up" in this forum in a genuine discussion of life system "origins" and what some might refer to as "darwanistically supported resolutions to the vast array of (just and ONLY JUST) humanly perceivable questions regarding the "chemicals to living ecosystems" splay of assertions that have historically (within the past decade or two) been (for understandable reasons up and to about 1959) been accepted as legitimate claims regarding how in the mighty unknown realm (you 20 to 90 and beyond if you are there, year old lovers of your masturbatorial philosphy) you could actually BELIEVE IN THESE RIDICULOUSLY OVERSTATED CLAIMS (UNDISCIPLINED IMAGINATIONS) TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THE STUPIDLY INTERPRETED RESULTS OF POINTED INVESTIGATIONS THAT WERE SET UP FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEMOSTRATING THE VASTLY FAR FRICKING FETCHED PHILOSOPHICAL PREFERENCES OF THE "EXPERT" OVER THE PUBLIC, SELF PROCLAIMED MASTERS OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE.
Damn. Why don't I get letters like that?
