( "A man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction."
-- Oscar Wilde ) True at times, but hers is by far the loveliest kind of fiction, Mr. Wilde -- a sweet page-turner that most men simply cannot ever put down...
( Saw a sign the other day on the InterWebs:
"National Sarcasm Society -- Like we need your support?")
No worries, guys... Sarcasm is the shallowest Chasm of all.
( Re: Korean despot Kim Jong Un, who pops up almost daily in the network news & web news feeds -- like some tenacious fungus that simply will not go away. )
* This odious little rodent needs to be squashed -- NOW. Besides his record of terrorizing & exploiting his own people -- with zero pangs of conscience whatsoever -- he looks like a stunted psychotic runt, a buzz-cut bobble-head-doll to commemorate the Fourth Stooge. No wonder Dennis Rodman was so attracted to him...
* Yep, Kim Jong Un, the kind of role model this world truly needs -- on millions of fist-sized portraits glued to the tops of urinal cakes...
( A guy in Europe recently posted a snarky essay on a social medium about how vexed he feels by linguistic “Muricanisms” ie. the way Yanks sometimes stick apostrophes into written plurals. )
So I wrote him a reply -- "Wow. Who do those 'Muricans' think they are, messing with the sacred institution of plurals? The nerve... This vibrant rogue apostrophe is, of course, a globe-shaking event, despicable at best -- in fact easily on a par with other annoying & forgettable "Muricanisms" that have plagued the globe for two centuries, such as the cotton gin, the electric light, the telephone, the airplane, the automobile, jazz & blues, the phonograph, the telegraph, the film projector, the television, the laser, integrated circuits, the PC & the Mac, the moon landing, the space shuttle, & look you little gasbag -- the very Internet & social media you use to snark away every day."
