    “Enough with the ideology and rhetoric! We are gathered here today, at this feast of conspicuous consumption, to take the bull by the horn – the moose by the antler, if you like – and to make the followers of the Donkey and Elephant castes, jealous of our way of life. We are poor, but we have enough – and so we are rich. This is not a contradiction… it is the truth…”

    Sally intoned, “The logic of solving the oil crisis by drilling for more suffers from the same fallacy presented by poachers’ response to the shortage of moose antlers: artificial insemination of the cows! Istead of addressing the issue with the bogus ideology of supply and demand, Big Oil should be working with environmentalists to wean the market from its over-consumption.”

    Ralph blinked. Then, he exploded, “What a load of crap! Your rhetoric is riddled with contradictions, illogical conclusions and plain nonsense! What poachers? You made that up, Sally!”

    “You’re just jealous because I get stright A’s,” taunted Sally.

    Mr. Friedman interjected, “Please refrain from ad hominem remarks.”

    Ralph smirked. “Hmph. A donkey should be jealous of an elephant that can’t even dance?”

    Mr. Friedman blasted his infernal air horn. “Awright, awright. The debate is over. Sit down, you two.”

    Hoof and Horn

    In the Ideology of the rhetoric where the woods meet the city
    There is a dispute between moose and deer.
    The deer wag their elder tined antlers and say we can enter and
    Enjoy the consumption of roses.
    The moose replied the city is too full of elephant and donkey want a bes.
    They are not even real animals just two leggers jealous of the splendor
    Of hoof and horn. Go enjoy rose petals just beware the contradiction of thorns.
