From something I read:
After all this time, [University So-And-So], surprisingly was able to produce at least ONE courageous man  who has the obesity to remind the confused and  numb headed [citizens] the long  forgotten  [structure and theory of government].  Please, somebody stop the co-dependent and the irresponsible masses from rendering MY rights, selling  my sole to the Satan and empowering this government.
Obesity? Rendered? Sole?  Know how the language you are writing in works, know the meaning of the words you use, or else you will say something that is ludicrous! 1.  Ludicrous Definition

2.  Ludicrous Word Origin & History
1619, “pertaining to play or sport,” from L. ludicrus, from ludicrum “source of amusement, joke,” from ludere “to play,” which, with L. ludus “a game, play,” may be from Etruscan, or from a PIE base *leid- “to play.” Sense of “ridiculous” is attested from 1782. “ludicrous.” Online Etymology Dictionary.
