I’m Getting Pst!Posted: October 26, 2012
Nothing can simply be better than what came before it. Obviously it can’t just be. This weekend there can’t be a storm approaching. It can’t even be a “big” storm. No.
“IT HAS TO BE THE BIGGEST STORM IN THE WHOLE OF HUMAN HISTORY!”
The world has moved to an ALL CAPS mindset where only superlatives will do.
Barrack Obama is the Best POTUS ever.
Mitt Romney is the Worst person on earth.
iPad Mini is the greatest product ever devised by human hands.
BudLime is the biggest innovation in beverages since the wedding at Cana.
Fish tales used to be fun little indulgences that were taken for what they were– hooey. Now people, marketers and politicians mainly (is there a difference, you ask?), routinely throw them out with a straight face. We’re not stupid. There is no pony beneath your horse shit.
I humbly suggest everyone go back and re-read “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”– THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD!
