Bathroom Monologue: Quakers Vs. Anarchists

"You wouldn't like this podcast. They talk about TV shows."

"I like TV shows."

"You don't know how to turn a TV on."

"Yes I do!"

"No you don't. You're a Quaker."

"Quakers watch TV."

"Watch TVs burn, maybe."

"You're mistaking Quakers for the Amish again, and I think mistaking the Amish for pyromaniac anarchists."

"...Anarchists watch TV."


  1. I've had conversations like this before.. they kinda make your head hurt.
    In a funny way, of course.

  2. And I live near Amish country too...
    *snort* Funny!

  3. You got a good laugh out of me, as always!

  4. Well, you know, it's common to mistake Quakers for the Amish for Anarchists. Totally understandable.

  5. I naturally read you into the first voice here and myself into the second. Except that, y'know, I wouldn't have so blithely accused anarchists of being pyromaniacs.

    Thank you for this. I may share it with my Quaker friends.
