Cambrian capers.


Back in Cambrian times do you recall how we sat on beaches with small fans
made from palmetto, and furthermore dangled our feet in the primordial ooze?

Aye I do that.

It was sunlit times and tranquil, and our toes curled in the warmth as we
sang songs and caught tiny green fireflies that were intelligent and sat
and sang back to us in high, shrill voices reminiscent of the pan pipes of

from the mum platypus. Tut tut.

Then we grew too tired and shot back through various triassic, Jurassic and
Devonian times until we decided on the gorgeous age of reason - Greek
