Oh, McSweeney's! (via Uncertain Principles, I think)
When little Aiden toddled up our daughter Johanna and asked to play with her Elmo ball, he was, admittedly, very sweet and polite. I think his exact words were, "Have a ball, peas [sic]?" 
And I'm sure you were very proud of him for using his manners. 
To be sure, I was equally proud when Johanna yelled, "No! Looter!" right in his looter face, and then only marginally less proud when she sort of shoved him. 
The thing is, in this family we take the philosophies of Ayn Rand seriously.
It is probably best that philosophers are so often ignored by society at large.
