Is DU REC disabled tonight?

I cannot seem to register a recommendation for any OP.

I have tried to recommend a whole bunch of you guys, but without success. If you have posted, consider yourself recommended by me.

Let's all go weave daisy chains for our Overlords!

I have just had an idea, inspired by King Trump I's majestic disapproval of the Democrats' deportment at the SOTU. Well, and probably the teachings of Lordess Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged&quot . Let's all show the Overlords the fealty they are due to receive. They are asking for a return to the glorious days of medieval obeisance.

Why don't we all go out and weave daisy chains for them? And maybe we could take a page from Voltaire's prescription for nobles who get too impressed by themselves: Follow them around, chanting, "He's going to speak! He's sure to be right! He is right! Yes, he was right!" Harangue them on their magnificence at every opportunity!

And bow or curtsey as they pass by.

Take a lot of time doing it.

No matter how much delay OR inconvenience it causes them. After all, noblesse oblige! Right?
