I had an awesome weekend – filled with good food and even better company- though i am not at liberty to share details (insert conspiratorial chuckle!) but I also remembered what life is about! that through all the stress and deadlines, you have to make time to put it all aside and just laugh – open your mouth real wide, it starts with a rumble in your belly and erupts in a big honest to God guffaw…
and laugh I did thanks to one George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) an American stand-up comedian, social critic, actor and author, who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. (please watch him if you have never!)
Sure; he swears too much and while watching him I at times felt a twinge of unease especially on his comments on religion- but i am open minded and have the ability to laugh at myself so i don’t mind people poking fun at a ‘God you cannot see’ my faith remains unwavering!
Anyway- I was catching up on news online and preparing for tomorrow’s breakfast show when I came across a site called buffalo beast and had such a laugh at a post listing the 50 most loathsome Americans of 2010 I thought I’d share – at the top of the list i.e Position NO.1 as the most loathsome American of 2010 was the average American ‘YOU!’ (the post said, since I’m not American) – but it made me think how this can apply to so many of us….
Reasons as to why the average American is the most loathsome American of 2010?

: Your brain’s been cobbled together over millions of years of blind evolution and it shows. You’re clumsy, stupid, weak and motivated by the basest of urges. Your MO is both grotesquely selfish and unquestionably deferential to questionable authority. You’re not in control of your life. You wear your ignorance like a badge of honor and gleefully submit to oppression, malfeasance and kleptocracy. You will buy anything. You will believe anything. You believe that evolution is a matter of belief. You likely are an impatient, semi-literate Philistine who’s either unable or unwilling to digest more than 140 characters at a time. You think Epic Beard Man is a national hero and that Bradley Manning might be Eli and Payton’s brother. You believe in American exceptionalism despite the contrary, compelling and overwhelming evidence. You tacitly partake in all manner of atrocity without batting a lash. You’re actively participating in our species’ extinction and you’re either in denial or you just don’t give a shit. You escape into every sort of mind-numbing distraction and ridiculous, convoluted fantasy, so you don’t have to face the bitter, terrifying fact that your life is utterly meaningless.

you may not be American but does the above apply to you?!
