A philosopher has an idea to save the world.
100 words

The world was hushed.

For the wizened philosopher had descended from the High Mountain of Solitude to bestow wise word during these troubled times.

Surrounded by world leaders and cameras clicking at the hallowed, serene features, the Wise One serenely told all that a lexicographical error had stymied the evolution of human civilization for over two millennia.

“The secret to restoring happiness and global order is but one action, that doth speak louder than words,” the humbled soothsayer intoned.

With that, robes parted and let loose of natural human splendor.

“Pees on earth.”

Later that afternoon, global nuclear war commenced.
