And the Lord spake, saying, “First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once at the number three, being the third number to be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.”
“This is the third General Assmelby I had to sit this year due to … Constitutional…problems. Now, I want all the ‘Qunnocrats’ and the ‘Patrickicans’ to work together, both …um, parties … to vote as I see fit … seriously, I am tired of this seating new governments….”

Little Quinn: “It may help us keep the mansion!”
“There are at least three reasons why we can’t stand pat.”

While our public universities are owed millions of capital and GRF dollars we are giving to private elitist liberal arts colleges millions of dollars. Good morale builder for those public universities we have been starving for five years! Obscene waste!
Following this executive order there are still three branches of state government: me, myself and I, each co-equal to the other … unless myself doesn’t pass pension reform and then me will hold myself’s pay and dare myself to run to I to try to get it thrown out.
