We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I’m going to call this, Funny Anecdotes from Popular Culture:
The other night, I had ‘Lost Girl (03×10) on SyFy on TV. They have some good dialogue on occasion, especially for the sidekick, Kenzi. Last night, our heroine, Bo, was a counselor at a camp for delinquents and Kenzi was a delinquent. After failing to catch Bo in a trust fall, Kenzi is pointing out her attack on “the Man” would make her a hero.
Kenzi, “Au contraire mon frère, you need them to trust me. And by taking down The Man,” she says, gesturing down Bo’s form, “I am like a folk hero to these delinks. I am like their Che Guevara!”
Bo, “Do you even know who that is?’
Kenzi, “Dude in the beret”
“Designs t-shirts for angry youth.”
I don’t know about you but I found that hilarious. And probably an accurate reflection of what 99% of the youth know about Che.
Seeing the guy who makes t-shirts for angry youth in the brain made me think of this
