What a goofball.
Of course I knew you were kidding.
I was ALSO kidding you back by accusing you of being obsessed with empirical evidence, since I know you hate empiricism!
Sarcasm goes right over your head, like the rockets red glare.
The bombs bursting in fucking air.
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
