Pickle's pickle. "The sergeant at arms is facing the oddly postmodern task of investigating a Senate leak of a report on the investigation of a Senate leak."

Which raises the question, what sort of postmodernist is Sergeant Pickle? He should take the quiz.

not postmodern
Whether you harbor some vestige of modernist

Reality TV, one thing is clear. You are just
Not Postmodern.

Not quite sure what the point of the post was, but if hte poster himself is derailing it, I might as well play along :)

You're Catch-22!

by Joseph Heller

Incredibly witty and funny, you have a taste for irony in all that you
see. It seems that life has put you in perpetually untenable situations, and your sense
of humor is all that gets you through them. These experiences have also made you an
ardent pacifist, though you present your message with tongue sewn into cheek. You
