Funny Mark, but you're going too far. You are comparing Jimbo with Kim Yong 
Il or some other absurdly glorified dictator. Moreover, I think this attemp 
is not as moribund as you suggest.

I appreciate most of your contributions and I share your sympathy for 
demographic minorities, but I can't really get your point in this. It 
reminds me very much of your earlier e-mail in which you requested two kinds 
of American English, Jimbonian and Nodelian. What's your point with jokes 
like these?
