    I used to think I was poor.

    Then they told me I wasn't poor, I was needy.

    Then they told me it was self-defeating to think of myself as needy. I was
    deprived.

    Then they told me that it was bad for my ego to think of myself as
    deprived, I was really underprivileged.

    Then they told me that underprivileged was overused. I was disadvantaged.

    I still don't have a dime. But I have a great vocabulary.

    Rock and dirt...You're lucky. 250 of us living in a paper bad in the middle of the road. We have to get up at 6 O'Clock in the moring, half and hour before we go to bed, and lick road clay 'til dawn. Then we work 24 hours down and the mill and when we get home our dad would beat us with a broken bottle until we were dead and dance about on our grave singing haullalya....If we were lucky. And you try to tell young people that today and they won't believe you.


    OOOH, a classic Monty Python skit.
