A Political Allegory

While hiking the Appalachian Trail, Jim's foot dislodged some loose shale, sending him ass over tin-cups into a rocky gorge 75 feet below.


It took several minutes for Jim to realize that he had, somehow, survived a certain death!  Then, the mighty stench kicked in.  He saw a mule's rotting head, with
empty, maggot eaten eye sockets staring blankly.

Whoa! He had quite miraculously landed atop the bloated corpse of this mule
that  had similarly fallen just days before.  It exploded under his mass, sending gases and offal spewing everywhere,  but cushioning his fall. 

Gagging from the stink, and horrified by this specter, Jim (a fastidious man) suffered a massive heart attack and died on the spot.
