Cant help but wonder if, in my lifetime, we’ll reach a stage of distressing political correctness where its no longer OK to mock people for being utterly fucking stupid.
I’m worried about this. My wife is going to be on the phone to our kids; “honey… your boyfriend is… well, he’s… remember last thanksgiving, when he insisted potatoes were a fruit for ten minutes? Well… Don’t bring him home. I know, I know, he’s… no, honey, I like Chris. Its just your know how your father is. Its how he was raised. He can’t help it”
Someone will tell me I’m not allowed to mock stupid people, or hate the stupid fucking things that they do, and I’m going to feel this dull, sullen rage. I’m gonna see some sign in a mall;
” “Your going to save big!” ? YOUR? What goddamned moron writes this?”
“Oh my GOD, Simon! stop saying that! People can hear you! You’re embarrassing me!”
Maybe I’ll be lucky and it’ll happen when I’m real old, and everyone will just assume I’m some sort of living museum of when it when it was OK to be stupidist. It’ll be the store manager, not security that politely asks me to leave.
