Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they're so frightfully clever. I'm really awfully glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They're too stupid to be able …

Brought to you by the douche-nozzles responsible for "Santa the Hutt" - their witty, pointed commentary on how excess is disgusting* and so are fat people. And fabric named after women's genitals.
