Mayor Creates Fantasy "Mental Image" Of Town Engineer's Office In Spite Of Never Having Been There

In a disturbing case of projection and taking a few data points and expanding them into a complete social scenario, an area Mayor has, over the years, built a complete and highly detailed "imaginary" workplace where amazing feats of engineering are done with breathtaking efficiency, solid American values and slapstick-like camaraderie. "Well, all I have ever seen is the fantastic output of that 'miracle factory' that they call Century West Engineering - and have met a few of the employees and of course the big burrito - Dennis Fuller. But the thing that spurred my sense of a utopian social nirvana was talking to the women who answer the phone when I call to ask dumb questions" said the decidedly envious Mayor. "Those ladies just seem so friendly, efficient, smart and professional that I could just kick myself for being a lifelong math laggard and thus self-excluded from the Olympian heights of the ever-glamorous engineering profession. What the heck was I thinking when I was not paying attention in my formative math years, dang it?!!!" he sniveled. "I could be mingling with the 'beautiful people' if I would have just forced myself to learn long division, geometry and that whole decimal thing!!" he said self-reprovingly. “Oh, what is squandered away in youth is sorely cherished in old age” he said melodramatically and completely out of all conceivable context to the situation.

Albert Einstein weren't no good at schoolin' neither and look how he turned out? Up and built himself a big azz bomb! You buildin' a big azz bomb from an old oak barrel there, son? There's no ordnance ordinance for it, that I recall, so go ahead. Just don't be chippin' the park tables with it, or park it up on blocks in the yard and hoistin' the Jolly Roger and partin' it out for a cannon in Pirate Dave's shipyard. Y'arrr!
