under socialism the reverse is true."

— Ancient Polish proverb

"Part-human, part-beast, & possessing the Leviathanic
virtue of existing forever, Wiske the gift-giver reappeared
in the jokes as the long-eared, long-membered &
long-tailed Trickster, forever setting traps for animals &
people & forever trapping himself."
