...yes, and note how the Primitives embellish
their temples with all these pretensious symbols
and imposing architecture. Yes, colleagues, this
is clearly the temple of their greatest God,
Radiac Tivit, that we've been searching for this
past tenyear. Note here his Holy Badge,
indicating a trinity of some sort with a central
figure that unifies them into a Divine Whole...

Well, after humanity's bombed itself back into
the dark ages, who the hell is going to even know
what a radiation hazard is!?

But all that means is some future Rattus sapiens
archaeologist will gad on about the time when the
Earth was young and these big, gangly ape-slaves
fed our ancestors CHEESE. And this is clearly the
Temple of the Great CHEESE, for lo! there is the
Sign of the Cheddar Wheel!...
