In days of old, masters of witty social commentary, such as Mark Twain and Ambrose Bierce, relied on a fine turn of phrase to poke humour or ridicule. Today, much lesser minds rely on a crude turn of the behind. In days of old, subtlety commonly characterized social commentary. Today, subtlety is seldom found in a society obsessed with expediencey. A "moon" may be one of the expedient replacements for subtle social commentary.
