Why ever would you read Vogon poetry [1]?  The only thing worse than 
that are Azgothian and Terran poetry!  For example, some nameless wretch 
once wrote "Ode to my French Fries" for a college assignment...  (In my 
defense, I really like french fries, I was in the cafeteria, and class 
was coming up. :)


[1] For those not initiated in the umm--pleasures--of Vogon Poetry, be 
thankful.  If you are a glutton for punishment:
