Bah attribuzion is ze core ov moderne historiez ov criminology & modern
art & zen 'naming' & appropriazion go boz az whore & pimp, vor inztance
hear ze sound as when you see a manethaz & you say 'ho my dear what a niz
rumzfled! '..well there iz two way vor ze origine ov a name, ozerz & then
your name is 'tiny one' cause some girlz have already talk about you in ze
bar, or you & then just call me hercule & then begun the mess 'what it'z
you hercule the tiny one?' & then crying in her peticoat your mom try to
give you a consensual one as 'small cloud' or 'gentle light hercule' &

light hercule & you ztop to call me big ass' & zen tiny one make full ov
babies to big ass cause avter all the only real name you have is ze one on
