A Sideways Glare at Contemporary Society
Why television advertisements for hearing aids don’t have subtitles. It seems to me they’re missing their target audience.
Why, after a murder, it’s always some jogger who finds the body. I don’t trust joggers — uh — or people who walk their dogs, either.
Why single women in romantic comedies all have crap jobs but fabulous apartments full of cool furniture. And how — exactly — are they paying for all this?
Why vegans always announce they’re vegan at parties. Are they worried somebody’s going to accidently drop a pork chop in their drink?
Why English actors can sound like they’re American but, when American actors try to do a British accent, they all sound like they’ve got a carrot up their nose.
Why Johnny Depp resigned from The Too Cool Club.
Why people use the phrase “funny as hell.” By all accounts, Hell isn’t the least bit funny.
Why Nala from The Lion King and Maid Marian from Robin Hood aren’t Disney princesses. I think it’s a clear case of species-ism (specaphobia?)
Why a stress ball isn’t for throwing at people who stress you out.
Why everybody cheers for the early bird but nobody has any compassion for the early worm.
Why people watch horror movies. I fail to see how scaring the bejesus out of yourself passes for “entertainment.” And that goes double for scary rides at the State Fair.
Why, when you can be anything you want on social media, people choose to be stupid.
