Beatrix Potter

Today is Friday, 28 July 2006.

It is the birthday in 1866 of Beatrix Potter, who brought to our notice Peter Rabbit, etc. (d. 1943).

The Museum of the Bourgeois congratulates her namesake, Beatrix, Princess of Puddle-Ducks, daughter of Bonnie, Princess of Seafood City, and Richard, Prince of Seafood City, on the occasion.

...And let us pay homage to Farmer MacGregor, the long-suffering and tragically maligned anti-hero in her revisionist tales of the non-productive anarcho-socialist Peter Cottontail and his infinite legions.

I have been justifiably rebuked by the author for the characterization of Peter and his minions as non-productive anarcho-socialists. I agree, and upon reflection I believe the most appropriate adjective should be nihilistic anarcho-socialists. The hordes of guerrillas that Peter has sired have destroyed my vegetable garden. They recognize no higher authority and have asserted a right to the products of my ability to satisfy their needs without appearing to honor the Marxist maxim that asserts From each according to his needs... to reciprocate beyond involuntarily filling my stew pot. Nihilistic from the perspective that if they can't eat it or breed it, they chew it down so nobody else can eat it or breed it.
