Fiddle While Rome Burns

One time, somebody accused me of fiddling while Rome burns because I wouldn't go after my Evil Twin, Kram Sheldon, and stop his latest scheme to take over Antarctica and build himself an army of Super-Intelligent Pan-Dimensional Penguins. I told this person that: 
1) He really should learn his geography, as Rome is in Italy, not Antarctica; 
  
B) I don't know how to play the fiddle, and in fact I am completely tone-deaf, so if I were to play the fiddle whilst Rome was burning, that would probably only encourage the fire to burn that much more voraciously in an attempt to silence my fiddling;  

and 

III) Thwarting my brother's schemes is a full-time job unto itself and, as far as Kram's Evil Schemes go, Super-Intelligent Pan-Dimensional Penguins really wasn't on the top of my list of threatening creatures. 

Some people just don't know how to sort out their priorities.

  1. Ah, you obviously haven't been studying your EVIL SCHEMES catalog. Super-Intelligent Pan-Dimensional Penguins are class seven. Of course, as we all know, class seven is below class ten (headed by Nuclear Squid) but far, far above class one (the lowest of which is cute kittens with gas). In other words, Super-Intelligent Pan-Dimensional Penguins are nothing to sneeze at. ;)

    Good luck with Kram.
