La Chansonette

        Planning anything, with the sole, small, chance exception of total confusion, was impossible 

        Idea kleptomania and virtual murder seethed from the third and fourth floors.

        Pigs I like enormously.  For that reason, I won't say the malefactors were "raised in a sty." 

        I'm trying to communicate clearly here in order to avoid total confusion, which I abhor in the same way nature abhors a vacuum.
