Certainly, Mark. Anything that smacks of the irony of what's going 
on. Send this one, as well. Comes from "The Devil's Dictionary" 
written between 1881 and 1906 by a contemporary of Mark Twain, 
Ambrose Bierce:

"Man, n. An animal so lost in rapturous contemplation of what he 
thinks he is as to overlook what he indubitably ought to be. His 
chief occupation is extermination of other animals and his own 
species, which, however, multiplies with such insistent rapidity as 
to infest the whold habitable earth and Canada."
