An oblique critique of rational choice

'Once upon a time there were three little sisters,' the Dormouse began in a great hurry; 'and their names were Elsie, Lacie, and Tillie; and they lived at the bottom of a well--'

'What did they live on?' said Alice, who always took a great interest in questions of eating and drinking.

'They lived on treacle,' said the Dormouse, after thinking a minute or two.

'They couldn't have done that, you know,' Alice gently remarked; 'they'd have been ill,'

'So they were,' said the Dormouse; 'VERY ill.'

I like your post, perhaps Walt should have had it as a motto to his Rigor mortis article.
