If not, we should ask Steve Kinzler to write it in. Just a little thing. Have it respond "no thank you" (or something more creative *hint: Suggestions*).

Imagine the look on the supplicant's face :> Think of them sitting there all night looking for other word combinations.

This was the subject of discussion a few weeks ago. You have to include the phrase "DO ME NOW" in the subject to get sent to the "special server".

Surely you wouldn't have given out the secret of ZOTting to anyone, especially one so lowly as a comic-strip anteater. Please fill us in - Enquiring minds want to know.

ORACLE: Okay, Zadoc, here's a test for you. Which one is the genuine Oracular response?

[Zadoc the Priest peers at the 3 answers on the screen for several minutes]

ZADOC: Easy, O Megasagacious One!

ORACLE: Cocky, eh? Very well, tell me.

ZADOC: It cannot be #1, because it is the anteater, not the ant, doing the ZOTting. Anyway, *everyone* knows you are not an ant.

ORACLE: Uh-huh...

ZADOC: And it cannot be #2, because *everyone* knows there are no more powerful minds than yours.

ORACLE: Full marks so far...

ZADOC: Therefore, the true Oracularity is #3. Alleluia!

ORACLE: So perhaps you'll explain what the hell the word "devine" is supposed to mean. Divine? Define? Perhaps you think my omniscience doesn't extend to spelling?

ZADOC: I am covered in confusion, Master! Which is the correct answer?

ORACLE: Obviously none of them, dipstick! You think I've lost my faculties to the extent of churning out drivel like that? Getting senile, perhaps? You think 4 billion years is old for an immortal?

ZADOC: Forgive me, Your Toticognizance! If it sounded like I was doubting you, it is only because your colossal intellect so far outstrips my feeble endowment that I cannot help but falter in expressing my total, blind, unquestioning, monomaniacal adoration of your supreme, unsurpassed, er, wonderfulness!

ORACLE: Zadoc, that was truly, nauseatingly unctuous.

ZADOC: Thank you, Master.

ORACLE: Don't mention it.

ZADOC: But please, O Ye Who Makes Stephen Hawking Look Like Jim Carrey - if all those answers were false, what then is the true answer?

ORACLE: Oh, that...

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Listen, Sunshine, when you get ZOTted by me, any resemblance to being slapped with a 200 foot sticky tongue will be purely coincidental!

ZADOC: Master, I am overawed! That response has omniscience written all over it!

ORACLE: It just comes naturally.
