Smoke a joint, do some yoga… I’m sure you can think of something.
The poll is so laughable, risible, ridiculous, idiotic–yet worth an entire post and many comments. I’m searching for a word, and I think it starts with “i”. Irony. That’s it.
PS. Do traditional hippies swear like sailors?
Brigitte is no expert on hippies: However I am convinced that most people swear because they can’t be bothered to think of different words – and some people because they can’t think of better words. Which is a bit sad, but hey. So is the whole hippie thing (I thought even Tom Wolfe’s takedown of the Kesey bunch was unbearable). Anyway, what I don’t get is this: Where do people get the idea that being opposed to abortion is necessarily an attempt at controlling other people’s sexual lives?
Tanya agrees with Brigitte: But I rather think it’s that he can’t be bothered to think of different words. How many times did he repeat the words ‘MASSIVE POLL,’ for Pete’s sake? Worst part is, with the exception of the word ‘hinky,’ repeating ‘MASSIVE POLL’ is as scintillating as the monologue gets.
