CRAP - CRAP - CRAP!

After NOT finding the stupid word in my local WORD dictionary, or thesaurus, I honesty thought I was going to COIN a word.

BUT, Dum-Dum forgot to go GOOGLE FIRST!

AFTER completing and posting, I DID GOOGLE ...

Conformation generally means structural arrangement. In science, it may refer to:
Chemical conformation, in chemistry, is the chemical structure of a molecule. In polymer chemistry, it's the three-dimensional shape of the macromolecular chain. Protein conformation, in molecular biology and biochemistry, a (tertiary structure) is its overall shape as determined by its folding. In animal breeding, it may refer to:
Conformation show, a show where judges evaluate individual dogs for how well they conform to published breed standards. Conformation point, how well a dog conforms in appearance to standards published for a specific breed. Equine conformation, the proportions of a horse's body in relation to one another.

To reiterate - CRAP-CRAP-CRAP!








Conformation

Copyright: 1/11/08 - Tom Hyland


Well, if no one else has yet done it, then I spike my flag right here - and CLAIM this word as being COINED by me, in the name of Queen -LADY LIBERTY!

Several TA-DAHS and drum rolls later, he presents himself upon the podium, high above the crowds, amidst their voluminous cheering in
The open-air Odium - OOPS! That’s not the word, - it means disgust,
or abhorrence! Odeum, or Odeon, is the correct spelling, being a large Amphitheatre, capable of holding thousands of people, with many seated on the grass, sometimes even smoking grass.

Anyway, before expounding upon the definition and merits of this fine word, conformation, let us first consider a similar, but different word - Confirmation.

Confirmation - we are told by our local lexicon, is the corroboration, verification, or authentication of something or another. It is the noun form of the gerund, confirming, which is the ACT of verifying or substantiating a fact, or occurrence. Now that must be clear as MUD, right?

So, perhaps an example will suffice? In the Catholic religion, when a child reaches the age of thirteen, he or she has a ceremony or rite conferred upon him/her, which is called a CONFIRMATION. He/she has reached the point where, after passing the Age of Reason, at Seven years old, now should be able to confirm the VOWS taken for him/her at Baptism, by his/her Godparents.

It is kind of, sort of, like a - Rite of Passage, whereby, after studying various scriptures, rules, dogmas, whatever - they stand up in front of a gang of people and say - I’M IN! In the Jewish faith, it is called a Bar Mitzvah for boys, and a Bas Mitzvah for girls. The bottom line is that he/she is Welcomed into the FOLD, after proclaiming that he/she has spouted out loud the TRUTHS of the chosen Credo.

Got the picture?

Okay, so now we simply change one letter, and we have the new word -
ConfOrmation - which is the noun form of the verb, conform - which means to be conventional, or traditional, or to do the accepted thing. To conform is to obey the rules, follow the norms, play the game - in short, to KOWTOW to the wishes of the greater majority, supposedly for the greater good of all concerned.

BAAAAA! BAAAAA! BAAAAA! Might be apropos, as a comment here - a new LAMB has joined the FLOCK of SHEEP!

So, as the holier-than-thou good shepherd goes, so goeth the conformists, or sheep. He says - we don’t need no frigging freedoms, and they say - BAAAAA! He says - it’s OKAY to wiretap without a warrant. They say BAAAAA!

He says - torturing maybe, might-could-be possible terrorists and holding them indefinitely, violating Habeas Corpus laws is totally justified and necessary, cause I said so, and God did appoint me, didn’t He? It had nothing to do with any RIGGED election polls in the SUNSHINE STATE of Florida! And WE say --- BAAAAA!

All the Democratic candidates for President say - PICK ME! PICK ME!
And I say - BAAAAAAA! All the Republican candidates likewise say - PICK ME! PICK ME! And again, I say - BAAAAAAA!

Can you see the difference yet? Do you discern the distinctive variance?
No? All the Conformists vocal replies have only five letter ‘A’s, while my replies contain seven ‘A’s, which mean, “BULL-SHIT!” So, I am a NON-Conformist, a BLACK SHEEP, who practices the opposite, or antonym of Conformation - Non-Conformation. Am I alone in this quest? Are there any intelligent beings out there who are ready to SCREAM OUT - ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Conformationists have historically followed blindly, slipping and sliding in sheepshit, and necessarily must smell like awful offal. By contrast, the NON-Conformationists, like me, occasionally do take SHOWERS, and anoint themselves with herbal oils, and myrrh, and other sweet-smelling salts, along with rose petals - kind of like French Ho’s!

I see a deep-seated NEED for a new, improved THREE-PARTY SYSTEM - a THIRD POWERFUL PARTY THAT TRULY REPRESENTS WE, THE PEOPLE. Whether that party is called Independent, or Green, or WE HATE LYING POLITICAL PROSTITUTES, doesn’t matter! A Grass Roots UPHEAVAL, which totally OUSTS that which preceded it, leaving Corporate Collaborators with their heads still stuck up their RECTUMS, trying to figure out - WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED?

DID THE STUPID OVINES WAKE UP? Did someone discover a huge TESTOSTERONE MINE?

Did someone wave a Magic Wand and change all those dumb, stinking lambs into SMART STEALTHY LIONS? You mean that now, we are going to be the PREY? Are we to be hunted down, stalked, put on trial like COMMON CRIMINALS who got caught with our collective hands in the COOKIE JAR? HOW DEMEANING!

AAH! TO SLEEP… PERCHANCE TO DREAM!

OOPS! Did I nod off?

Oh, where oh where, are those dog-gone SHEARS?

Conformation calls --- mustn’t be late !

Time to go get FLEECED AGAIN!
