Two Women in One House
Conservatives, especially American conservatives like the notorious right-wing eliminationist Harry Hutton and his monstrous accomplice Davies, often suggest, that sharing cannot work, and that social democracy is therefore doomed. "Right theory, wrong species!" they thunder, brandishing their firearms and chewing their tobacco.
They are worng however, and science, proves it:
"Two-headed snakes are rare, but they shouldn't be looked at as freaks," said Gordon Burghardt, a herpetologist...
Despite the risqué name, a herpetologist is merely an expert in the field of snakes. And what he has to tell us is of great importance to the world, for if two heads may coexist on the same snake for years, sharing their resources equally, then surely we can do the same.

If anyone's ever provided a better description of the two-party system than that I've sure never heard it.
Right-wing Americans like Hutton and Davies need to open their minds a little. There's more to life than Budweiser-fueled hooting at NASCAR and slavish devotion to Ann Coulter.
I have to say, I am sure that two-headed snake developed as a metaohor for something. That's a problem the geneticists keep overlooking: zygote-formation-as-metaphor. Someone should fund this.
And Helen, HA^3 was the worng person to proofread your entry.
I call into question the herpetologist's credentials--this doesn't sound like sound zoology to me, but more like the kind of PC-babble that half-wits indoctrinated in identity politicis and other such nonsense spew forth mindlessly. Either he's got his degree at the Refrigerator Repair College of Northern Alaska, or he holds a master's in Culture Studies from Duke.
Then he goes on to assert that the two heads "have to agree to pursue the same prey," committing a moronic category mistake. Snakes can't reach any sort of agreements at all--that is the potential result of an exchange of reasons and arguments, which is the privilege of beings endowed with conceptual abilities.
This is just another sad instance of self-righteous moral entrepreneurs finding supposed evidence for their mistaken ideology in the world of indifferent animals. I suggest the only legitimate use for that two-headed freak is in an advert for a buy-one-get-one-free promotions for blowjobs in a German brothel. Two heads for the price of one or something.
However, I bet it would make a nice pair of boots. Can't say that about our 2-party system now, can we?
Elitist snob. I shall chew my Redman contemplatively and praise the Lord I have no equivalent class envy myself...
Do snakes get headaches?
Because they ought to, the ugly bastards.
