Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling
The Land Obsessed With Earlobes.
- a parable - 
In a society far, far away, people were obsessed with earlobe size. 
After centuries of lobe-based repression, the large-earlobed people finally conferred upon the small earlobed full rights. 
Old Man: We of generous earlobes are also generous of spirit. 
Yet it wasn't enough. The legacy of generations of oppression and persistent prejudice kept the small of small of earlobe from advancing. 
Man: Thank you for the interview. 
Interviewer: We'll be in touch. 
Fat chance, puny-lobed moron!
So programs were developed to help those of limited lobe. 
Woman: There aren't enough small earlobers at our college. 
Man: Well, let's get 'em in! 
But after a while, the big earlobers complained about the preferential treatment. 
Man: We must become an EARLOBE-BLIND society. 
Yet, ironically, by making earlobe size the ONLY thing they would refuse to look at, they were actually HIGHLIGHTING it!
Woman: He's a B+ student, debate club, from a poor neighborhood, and has small earlobes. 
Man: YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT EARLOBES! 
A history of earlobe obsession sentenced the society to an utter inability to ignore it. 
Man: Nice to meet you. 
He's got small earlobes. He's got small earlobes. 
Man #2: How are you? 
He's got big earlobes.
