'Dr. Seuss's The Butter Battle Book'
On one side of a stone wall, there's the Yooks, the "proper" race that butters their bread "butter side up". On the other side live the Zooks, which (gasp!) butter their bread "butter side down". The two groups, whom appear to be the exact same with the exception of this one characteristic, have waged war with each other for countless years.
The Butter Battle Book shows the story of an old man who was once patrolled the wall, protecting the Yooks from the terror of the Zooks. With the help of his advisor, things get worse and worse until he and Zooks' protector both bring out a device that will destroy both sides of the wall forever. Who's going to drop it first? We may never know..."

It is an anti-war story; specifically, a parable about arms races in general and mutually assured destruction and nuclear weapons in particular.
The Butter Battle Book tells the story of a land where two hostile cultures, the Yooks and the Zooks, live on opposite sides of a long curving wall, fairly similar to the Berlin Wall. The Yooks wear blue clothes; the Zooks wear orange. The main dispute between the two cultures is that the Yooks, who live on one side of the wall, eat their bread with the butter-side up, while the Zooks, who live on the other side, eat their bread with the butter-side down. The conflict between the two sides leads to an arms race, each competing to make bigger and better weapons to outdo the other, which results in the threat of mutual assured destruction.
There was a TV special in 1989 by filmmaker Ralph Bakshi, narrated by Charles Durning. Seuss himself called the short the most faithful adaptation of his work.

Sorry! Thanks for filling in the details.
I’m starting to loose interest… And then my latest upload disappeared.
I’m not into uploading popular stuff, and not many at OBT want to download and seed my obscure stuff.
So maybe it’s time to move on…

privategomer, think of OBT and bittorrent as a library and not as a popularity contest.
that said, I enjoyed these two posts!

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I really miss Mininova. Piratebay freezes my computer, BTJunkie is great for downloads, but sucks for uploading. I’ve also tired without satisfaction Seed Peer, Extra Torrent, Kick Ass and a couple of private trackers.
I pretend to know what I’m doing, so I’m always learning. I really like working with video and I like sharing with my comrades, but uploading and maintaining torrents is my least favorite activity.
I have a lot of stuff ready to upload, but like I said I’m losing interest. It’s all the same material I make for myself and it varies from simple rips to complex captures. For example, tomorrow I will have all 4 parts of ‘Meltdown' ready. http://www.cbc.ca/doczone/meltdown/ I have also been working on ‘The Mouse and His Child’ for over a month and it's almost ready. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076416/
As far as the concept of the library is concerned, it sounds good, but the obscure titles will only be available for withdrawal for a short period of time.
May ask why they pulled Betty?
