  Line Dancing & Spadix Sambas

In the long long winter evenings of West Cork you can hear the screams of
primitive New World pre-pollination rituals. Line Dancing is rampant.
The coming of non-indigenous parents into this pollen transfer system seems
to be enriching local gene pools. They were depleted by line breeding over
hundreds of generations. The new outbred progeny have the expected hybrid
qualities and now are not even recognisable as Hibernian. The pure original
species may be endangered. I say Hi-bernian because the indigenous pink
skin is being outbred. It burns easily, presumably a recessive
characteristic, a kind of blush albino for passion visibility in long dark
candle lit winter nights. The more resistant European skin of the new
offspring has survival advantages when the frantic behavioural patterns of
alien species & hybrids mainly in the New World have destroyed the ozone
layer and global UV levels are at mark ten skin grill cuisine "A la Bush".
Line dancing is a splendid precursor to miscagenation for enhancing gene
pool diversity. To render strains resistant to the otherwise catastrophic
damage caused by less adaptable & self-destructive mainly Brave New World
life forms.
