Why a BMP, for heaven's sake?

Nothing but posting a BMP online could fully convey the evil of eating babies.

I eat babies. Every day. They're especially good in pies. Though Tom Leher does express eating babies very well in one verse of his song "The Irish Ballad":

One day when she had nothing to do
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
One day when she had nothing to do
She cut her baby brother in two
And served him up as an Irish stew
And invited the neighbors in
-bors in, -bors in
And invited the neighbors in

When we took up Swift in English, one of the students didn't realize that A Modest Proposal was satire. Good times.

Aw come on. Everyone knows that German babies are the best. They're already beer-battered when you get them. :P

I think you have it wrong, my good sirs. Christian babies taste the best. The Jews and/or Satanists definitely know what they're doing.

—Alorael, who has it on good authority that DARPA knows the value of babies as well.

Well, I'm sure that when I get my German, it'll be boozed up and battered. But I wouldn't go so far as to call it beer-battered.

Jonathan Swift was eons of wisdom ahead of his time. Since most of us still do not eat babies now, I guess he is still more advanced that we are now. He makes such good arguments for the practice that I cannot believe it did not catch on immediately. It made clear economic sense because the cumulative effects of the poor raising children in overpopulated England at the time was disastrous for everyone.

Thuryl: I mean, most of us don't go around consuming our own bodily fluids, no matter how delicious they are.

Alorael: War and violence would end if we all had each other's babies!

Drakefyre: Those are hideous mangos.

If Swift is advanced then I must be a freakin' prodigy. I'm talking about divine prowess here! Now where the heck is the BBQ sauce.

Why is it that JPEGs, GIFs, and PNGs load from the top down, but BMPs load from the bottom up?
