"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
George Santayana (1863 - 1952), The Life of Reason, Volume 1, 1905

(Also, perhaps Daddy should wear "Painting Clothes" too.)

Don't tug on Superman's cape.
Don't spit into the wind.
Don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger.
And don't mess around with Jim.
