How Now, Chairman Mao?
by Chairman Mao

IN YOUR FACE, YOU STUPID HILLBILLY! IN... YOUR... FACE!! You better be glad I'm not starting a new cultural revolution, or you'd be buried in a big pile of dirt, instead of having sex with your cousin in one! What are you going to do, hillbilly? CRY?? Well, go on! CRY, you blithering redneck hayseed! Everybody loves ME, and wishes you were DEAD. You're a horrible writer, and thanks to those who voted, there will NEVER be any more hillbilly writers, or anyone else who speaks against the state! Comrades, we must now band together, working long hard hours, eschewing all other pleasures in order to build the perfect society! For I am MAO! And Hillbilly Bob Billy Billy is a great big GOOBER! HA! HA! HAAAA!!


[The Stranger would like to congratulate Chairman Mao, and to everyone who voted... well, we hope you're satisfied.--eds.]
