Too many things are happening all at once for it to be a coincidence. As your always-dependable guide to cosmic events, it is the task of your Curmudgeon to help you make sense of it all. These are the events of which we speak:
As most of you know, the trash documentary, Expelled! — staring matinee idol Ben Stein — is now being sold off in bankruptcy court (see NCSE’s report). That film is probably the most horrendous heap of rubbish since Triumph of the Will.
And as the whole world knows, the May 21 Rapture prophecy of radio swami Harold Camping has spectacularly failed.
This post, dear reader, is for you to comment on the confluence of these events. What does it all mean? Surely, such an aggregation of signs and portents is not without purpose. What are the odds against so many amazing things happening all at once, all by themselves? Clearly there is a message here, and this is your opportunity to understand it all.
However, we have always had civility rules around here, and this situation requires our particular attention. To protect the sensibilities of the ladies who visit our humble blog, and who enjoy our benevolent protection, we now declare that certain words and phrases can’t be used in connection with “Weiner.” They are:
… lets it all hang out.
… takes a licking (or beating, or thrashing, etc.)
… relies on his staff
… outstanding (or prominent, or impressive, etc., or their opposites)
… exposed (or revealed, etc.)
… drops out
… Congressional member
That is not, of course, an all-inclusive listing, but you get the general idea. Now then, let us know your thinking about what all of this portends.
