Oy vey, a smear –or– Don’t you know that puns are antisemitic!?

Tuesday, 4 December 2007

In the 2007 Best Unconscious Use of Symbols Explaining What You’re Really All About, I offer this Technicolor Rorschach–

Oy vey, a smear… ew, that’s blood, isn’t it?

What do you see?

Now, tell me. Really. Tell me that does not look like a blood smear. The playful arcs of someone who really enjoys smearing blood. Can do it creatively. Make it pretty. Really show the beauty of your own blood spilled to be beautiful.

I also propose Pond’s Corollary to Godwin’s Law.

Application of the adjective antisemitic to describe a participant in an online discussion is an implicit comparison involving Nazis or Hitler. Pond’s Corollary

My favorite proof that conspiracy theories are better explained by stupidity than malice.
