    Said Hamlet to Ophelia,
    I’ll draw a sketch of thee,
    What kind of pencil shall I use?
    2B or not 2B?

    Speaking of humor. Lately I’ve been trying to reformat the classic ‘Russian reversal’. It’s a bit clunky.

    In thinking about voter suppression, gerrymandering, and districts even when they weren’t so biased:
    In free countries, people, is good, they think about and select politicians they would like.
    In America, populations select you.

    Working off the ambiguity of the word tax.
    In free countries, corporations do well. People tax corporations.
    In America, corporations tax you.

    Sam N : Love the ‘tax’ one. Very clever. (But don’t explain it! No need, and it kind of spoils the joke.)

    As is well known, when mathematicians are constipated, they work it out with a pencil. That must be why they are called number 2 pencils.
