Oh, yeah. That's right. Cuz we're "deciding" the World's Greatest!

Booyah!

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien

Pepsi? The man writes erudite paeans to the glories of esoteric potato chips and drinks Pepsi?

Oh, but the scales have fallen from my eyes. Wosbald has feet of clay.

I am depressed.
