Out of the One Dimension and...(the drive home)

into the 89 dimensional universe of the big whopper.

Can anyone tell me what the above is all about. Is this one of those things that everyone but me 'gets'? Am I headed for the Laughing Academy?

But why pay good money to a psychiatrist when this sign (and a few others like it) can explain you to yourself and to others? I'm off to make a bun out of meat. I'll be up all night until I get it just right.

Entry Into One Dimensional Environment Explained

As the first "entrant" into the one dimensional house, I want to urge everyone out there NOT TO TRY IT. It has left me exhausted; still recuperating. It took me months of training to perform the feat (feet) that I did, Voluntary Intra-planetary Body Molecular Compression and Alteration (VIMBCA). It is a dangerous practice, and must be studied under strict supervision. The initial "entrant" into a one dimensional environment experiences all the shear, Z-Forces, Cramp Convulsions, and Pre-frontal Cortical Lunacy (PFCL) that are the greatest hazards of this brave quest. Once the initial entrant (IE) has paved the way, so to speak, all other entrants (AOE's) can move in with little or no harmful effects. So, unless guided by an experienced VIMBCA Certified Specials (VCS), please, please, do not attempt to negotiate the dimension they dare not call by name.
Thank You.
