"I-um-ah, it's political."
She scurried away.
Judge Jelly Beans sighed and shrugged at

stepped from behind a pretzel cart.
He was selling pretzels in an apron with
pretzel designs and a pretzel cap.
The Judge spun about with a bright toothy

"Social security, welfare, medicare, medicaid,
labor unions, EPA, public education,
public works on roads, waste management,
public utilities, libraries, food safety,
police and fire department, CDC, FDA,
the armed forces: army, air force,
navy, national parks, federal disaster
assistance, NEA, Home Land Defense,
FBI, CIA, NATO, the North American Union,
The Federal Government which includes
the senate, congress and executive branch

Socialism provides the infrastructure for
democracy. It is not communist."

"Do you have any mustard?" Judge Jelly Beans
smiled as Muzzy handed her the mustard.
"Oh, judge this pretzel on me." he retorted.
