Ha ha ha ha ha
So still, so serious, perhaps I have to explain.
There's a little joke, see, and I guess you aren't in on it.
But it's a joke with a story. So I'll back it up to where I came in to join your lovely company.
I'm walking in, and I see this ridiculous-looking crowd.
But really, not so different from each other. Ah? Ah? Look around you. I could tell you things about yourselves. Things you'd never say... with present company.
And I'm no mind reader.
You're just a little like me. And that's what scares you. Not these -- my smile. You know they say the best way to success is to smile, and to dress for the job you want.
Luckily, I'm way ahead of the game there.
Or this knife. I'm not the only one with the power to kill -- I haven't even got the big guns. Let alone a couple hundred nukes. You let your most respected leaders have those. I bet any one of you could kill another with your bare hands and just a little motivation. You know you only need five pounds of pressure per square inch to crush someone's windpipe?
That's what scares you! It's that I'm like you. Or, rather, you're like me. But if that's true -- you're really most afraid of being like yourselves! Get it?
Maybe you had to be there.
But don't worry. I can take you there.
