Those who sneak free lunch
Will someday deal with karma
Eat their just desserts.

Many folk had the free lunch of Chrome snuck upon them. But then many folk live on fast food.
At times I wonder whether that with which we are surrounded is not deliberately made more complicated so that we give up trying to understand. And with ageing of course that option becomes increasingly attractive. Nonetheless: Snicker-snack!!!

I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case. They wear us down…. And suddenly we’re Snicker-snacked! Ha, what a word.
You had me curious so I looked it up myself. Didn’t know it was coined by Lewis Carroll in his poem Jabberwocky. It’s been a long time since I’ve read Alice. (Synchronicity that Ownshadow recently posted a poem that reminded me of L.C.)
I find myself recalling something from Carroll quite often; a bit like Shakespeare or the Bible.
Yes, me too. Good comparison!
Snicker-snack!? I always thought that was what brother Fritz ate between meals. (Do you have Snickers chocolate bars in England?)
Sadly we do. Formerly they were called Marathons, a much better name I thought. It even seemed to make them last longer. However in the meantime, like all chocolate bars, they just keeping getting smaller and smaller, while at the same time the price keeps going up and up. 😦
he’s coming after
any free lunch 🙂
Classic modus operandi of a con (wo)man.
