Gratuitous Idiot Watch

Whilst on my travels this past week, I happened to see a man sporting a t-shirt that read, "I'm Already Opposed To The Next War!"

It was my belief that I had viewed the veritable point at which the streams of gob-smacking foolishness and self-satisfied moral preening converged, and that from here on out I was never to see anything quite so ridiculous again.

But wait, as they say in the advertising trade.

Not five minutes later, I saw another fellah adorned with a t-shirt that read, "I'm Allergic To War".

Ladies and Gentlemen, I submit to you that this second shirt actually topped the first. Not only did it succinctly encapsulate the same sentiment of meaningless, illogical, Mr. Rogers-like pacifism, it also did so in a way that let the wearer discuss his health issues!

Well, we can all hope that Mr. "Allergic" will soon succumb to anaphylactic shock and thus earn a Darwin Award.

Robbo, Obama was in Maine last week? I thought he was in Hawaii. *sigh* You just can't trust the MSM to get anything right.

Even better (or worse) last month when I was in Portland OR I saw a guy with a shirt proclaiming: "Too many Christians, too few lions"

Crass to bee sure but such T-shirts do serve a useful purpose. It makes it easy to identify the fools so you don't waste your time talking to them...

Ah, so you saw some bumper sticker intellectuals. Well those were t-shirts they were wearing but close enough.
