Oh crud, I hope you all don't think I'm cruel.  I know you're not saying
that Martin, and I admit my humor can be a bit biting.  But I wasn't meaning
it to be serious.

I've certainly seen worse about Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD, etc. on YouTube.
But I wouldn't want to seriously make one.  Though most jokes hurt in some
way, the concept behind my idea is an unwarranted and inaccurate
comparison.    Better off leaving the political system to taking those types
of jabs.
