Master Phung, reading from ``Phoenix Sprite,'' a ``masterpiece'' of
Chinese literature:
	``My wish is that immortals to the number of the grains of sand along
	the Ganges River would all send lovely girls down to be married into
	the human world.  Then living beings would suffer less than they do in
	this sea of poverty and bitterness.''

Steve, in response:
	``Your quotes at least have some element of...  well...  of,
	uncertainty.  And underlying intelligence.  This is just stupid.''
