“This is a story you won’t tell the kids we’ll never have.
If you hear this song a hundred times it still won’t be enough.”
Husker Du - How to Skin a Cat
We are starting a cat ranch and raising one hundred thousand cats
Each cat will have twelve kittens a year
The cat skins will sell for thirty cents each
One hundred men could skin five thousand cats a day
We could be dealing a profit of over ten thousand dollars
But what should we feed the cats?
We will start a rat ranch next door with a million rats
The rats will breed twelve times faster than the cats
So we can have more rats to feed each day to each cat
But what should we feed the rats?
We will feed the rats the carcasses of the cats
After they have been skinned
Now get this!
We feed the rats to the cats and the cats to the rats
And get the cat skins for nothing
