BTC - HUMOR
We here at BeatTheChip at times have been called on the mat for being a bit irreverent and prone to being distrustful of our government.
Our response to this is that we do not negotiate with fascists, at least not with any diplomatic skill, and the wet noodle lashings will continue until levity ensues. Anything is better than watching CNN today.
In this year of declared political allegiances - we have come up with some creative terminology for recent outbreaks of mass hysteria.
1) "Drinking the Kool-Aide" - This term applies to the person who blindly follows any line of rhetoric without question or stopping for the occasional grain of salt. The phrase has been used interchangeably with people who follow cult leaders. A proper use of this phrase might be, "Aunt Mabel, has been drinking the Kool-Aide. I can't get a word in edgewise about any other political perspective other than her candidate."
2) "Hope-mongering" - This is a gerund phrase for the incessant media blanketing for overkill mention of the words "Obama", "Barack Obama", and now the new dead-horse they are pulverizing, the Vice Presidential nomination of Joe Biden. You may count for every 36 Obama mentions there is a McCain mention. Not that we care. We just want variety and parity and ..maybe some of the other news we are missing. A proper use of the words Hope-mongering might be, "Jesus, Mary & Joseph, can't I get any news on a concrete economic or a civil liberties plan from either of these people? A few months ago this was a bit of smooth jazz for Democrats. Now, all I'm getting is Hope-mongering!! "
It's like going to the grocery store and being told you can choose from 5 different flavors: Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate and Vanilla. I think I'll have the Alka-Seltzer.
3)"Dirty Sanchez Bastard" - c/o UrbanDictionary.com- use this mace sparingly at TSA agents when they steal your laptop and grope your wife. Or when a Border Patrol Checkpoint pops up in you're rear view when you're out shovelling snow in the driveway.
n. A derogatory term used only in the most extreme situations as to where you are yelling during an unrehearsed fit toward any communistic authority figure. i.e. a principal, president, boss, etc.
Current event's use of the term:
"We are going to continue to put them in areas where people have to pass through from point A to point B," said the Dirty Sanchez Bastard constructing checkpoints in Washington state.
(Random conversation until random sighting of school principal.)
EX: Brit: Freeman! You took away my freedom you Dirty Sanchez Bastard!!!
KIDS - DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME
Here's a story about a Dirty Sanchez Bastard, getting punked by some not-so-nice hackers here.
A hacker broke into a Homeland Security Department telephone system over the weekend and racked up about $12,000 in calls to the Middle East and Asia.
Highlights from Gizmodo Comment Board:
"Human Bomb -- says
Everyone point and laugh at the DHS!"
