Brian Lenihan Rewrites History : I Resisted Bailout

Isn’t it amazing what a difference new software makes?

You just can’t compare the 21st-century political Lie-Bots with the equipment we had to use back in the 1960s.

Brian Lenihan Senior ran on Liar 1.3 and he got by pretty well, but his mature-reflection processor was slow and clunky.  It could take him years to invent a new version of the truth that made him look good.

The next-generation Lenihan-3000 unit from Lie-Tech not only has a blazing fast reality-distortion processor, but it also runs Mendacity, the latest lie-generating software beamed from the preserved brain of Steve Jobs directly into the microchip.  It’s the first true man-machine symbiosis, where all of Lenihan’s fantasies are stored on a vast Apple starship orbiting a far-distant nebula.

Cloud lying.

The Lenihan-3000 is not the final product, and Jobs’s brain has indicated it probably won’t go to mass production.  An even more devious version is planned to roll out in the new year.  Codenamed Bartholomew, the iBert, running on a super-devious Nebula Nine processor, will be able to distort the facts before they even happen.  Governments across the world have placed pre-production contracts and a military version is also planned, with an enhanced atrocity-denial module.

Consumers should be able to buy early hand-held versions of the iBert some time in mid-2012.

The answer is side splitting uncontrollable laughter. Brian the Joker and his side kick Brian the Penguin flying through reality with their improbability drive on full!

There (once*) was a Fiannl named Brian
Continuing familiy lyin’
Though sellout assisted
Claims bailout resisted
Fiannled again – no denyin’!**

alternate last lines:

Your why wreck by lie-tech not buyin’
Good work, lad – can’t fault ya for tryin’!

* whether to insert the word “once” depends on whether “Fiannl” is pronounced with 2 or 3 syllables. Also determines how to pronounce the last Fiannled line.

** Listen – I’m not a local, and I’m not bothering to verify Bock’s claims about the Lenihan clan – just limricking based on what’s here. If they’re not really such bad (good?) liers, I retract and apologize.

Prometheus stole fire for the benefit of mankind. Does that also fit into your analogy?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prometheus

Regarding the painting: looks to me like Rubens got a little carried away painting muscles on him! And for such a muscular guy, you’d think he could break out of that measly chain.

I think that the analogy is the other way – Prometheus is Ireland, who keeps getting it’s liver/insides eaten out by the eagle/FF. It recovers, just to have it happen again – and again, and again…

OK. But that’s (#13) not overanalysing – that’s just the basic analogy. The fire question is overanalysing.

Prometheus was a wily trickster. He provoked Zeus for some reason. Zeus took his liver for a feast, which because he was an immortal was bound to regenerate every night having been feasted on by a hooknosed raptor the day before.
Strikes me the parallels between Lenihan Sr. and CJH and Ireland and Fianna Fail were too obvious to necessitate direct explanation. But thanks anyway Some1loves.

Me thinks you’re missing your own analogy also. Lenihan is not Prometheus. Read #13 again.
