It seems to me that if they can graft human ears onto a mouse, then it can’t be very difficult to come up with a special button, which
— when pressed by a skilled operator — sends a beam of joy to all corners of the earth, relieving all unhappiness and even
mild cases of disquiet. It would be more effective than beer, and cheaper than cigarettes.
They spend millions every year redesigning mice, but nothing on the beam of joy.
And they have telephones now too, that you can carry around with you.
The world’s gone mad, if you ask me.
