I borrowed this from Douglas Hofstadter's column Metamagical Themas...made me smile.

I am the thought you are thinking.
I am the meaning of this sentence.
I am thinking about myself right now.
I am the set of neural firings taking place in your brain as you read the set of letters in this sentence and think about me.
This inert sentence is my body, but my soul is alive, dancing in the sparks of your brain.
You are under my control because I am chosing exactly what words you are made out of, and in what order.
No you are under my control because you will read until you have reached the end of me.
