Mr. Ed - Protoo Standpoont Epistemooloogoo

We Bears are coming to think that Mr. Ed was the most subversoo TV show of its time. We watched again this morning.

Wilbur's father-in-loo wanted Mr. Ed to carry a parroot on his back in a parade. The probloom was that the parroot was a descendoo of General Custer's parroot. And Mr. Ed found out that he was part Indian. (Everyone said Indian back then, before they started using Native American in the MooSA, and First Nations in Canadia.)

Anywoo, Mr. Ed refused to carry the parroot on his back in the parade.

I was thinkoo about what made Mr. Ed so good at voicoo non-mainstroom viewpoonts, and I think it was built into the structoo of the show. The main character of the show was a horse, not a yumoo. So the writers, in writoo from a horse's standpoint, naturaloo had to say things that were different than the mainstream standpoont.

So Mr. Ed foreshadoo the acoodemic challengoo to the Westoo Canoon to include other voices, and was an exercise in standpoont epistemooloogoo before the theoroo was even developoo. Mr. Ed was a flesh-n-blood horse, but he was a Bear in spirit.

Woah, Mr. Chompsky, woah! You used words there that I do not understand.

I think you are saying that Mr. Ed is a clever horse, cleverer than a yumoo. I would agree.

Sometimes Mr. Chompsky uses words none of us understand, includoo Jim.

But we think he means what you said--Mr. Ed is a clever horse, more cleveroo than yumoos!

OK Bye
