You see, it really helps clarify things when you boil them down to just the essence!

If you're intimate with VAP, you'll understand that the parody is perfect, just perfect!  :-)

Why parody VAP? Well, someone will, it may as well be us! Besides, humor is good for the heart and while tragedy may motivate, comedy is a better lever. :-)
