Okay, well I want to thank everyone (nearly 200 of you) who voted in the Gay or European Orange Sweater Poll. I am thanking all of you, even though, statistically, more than half of you have no idea what the hell you are talking about. That sweater is clearly European. If it were any more European, it would need a freakin’ passport!
Anyway, I won’t contest the election results. More than half of you didn’t think it was European. I won’t mention what the exact results were because it’s not really important. This is a democracy, and democracy isn’t about gloating over the ignorance of the electorate. Democracy is about stealing money from the working man and giving it Dick Cheney’s friends at Haliburton.
I’m not really upset that some people (incorrectly) thought it was a gay sweater. In a weird and disturbing way, it’s a compliment. Women always say that the homosexuals are better looking and better dressers than straight guys, so it’s kind of a compliment, right? What I did find upsetting is the people that implied that only an aging homosexual would wear something like that. That’s a back-handed compliment. That’s like saying “for a fat chick, you don’t sweat much” or like when Joe Biden calls Barack Obama “articulate”.
Anyway, I was a little upset by that, but then I saw this:
This is worksafe. It's the only the best NINJA KITTEN music video ever made!
How could anyone be upset after seeing that?
And to the Anonymous trolls who had hateful things to say: HAahahahahahaha. Here’s a little edjumacation for you: Sun Tzu said “don’t trust your enemy, don’t take what he gives you.” If I was really worried about what people thought of that sweater and what it implied about my sexuality, I wouldn’t put it on the net for a bunch of strangers to critique it. But I am really taken aback by the level of hatred that you have for someone that you’ve never met. You lash out at some faceless person on the net, to make you feel like a big person, but don’t even have the courage to put your name on the comment. Anyway, let it go, man. “Is that where you want to be when Jesus comes back?” Try watching that video a few more times.
