1. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), or H.R.3261, is a pending bill geared toward preempting U.S. property theft by promoting creativity and innovation. 2. Referred to as the scavenger commonly known as the ex-wife. Similar to an inflamed appendix, SOPA causes much pain and suffering, but when later removed, it is discovered it was not needed in the first place. If left to fester, SOPA bursts and can potentially be extremely fatal.
I would say a snake. Cleverly disguised by its own savage tongue, the razor-edged wit of the words of lobby-pressured bureaucrats, and the ignorance of the general masses, it presents itself as a good and necessary thing, thus, it soon convinces the unwitting to sink their teeth into an apple, forever damning mankind to a governed internet. It banishes us from freedom and liberty as the venom seeps in and destroys free will, disagreeable opinion, and opposition, turning a country built upon the blood, sweat, and tears of men who gave everything for the ideal of a country where life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness reigned supreme.
This is probably the most poetic thing I've ever written.
