Your RDA of Irony

Visions of Hell

Vision 1:

Last week I had a robocall tete-a-tete with Callista Gingrich.  Yesterday, Mike Huccabee shared his concerns with my poor, helpless answering machine.  I can’t understood how those two got my phone number.  They can’t be reading the same washroom walls.

Vision 2: 

Someone recently asked me, “What do you do for fun?”  Had this been a job interview, I might have replied, “Annual reports and newsletters.”  If confronted with a HR person, I might even have denied the existence of fun.  However the context of the question was purely social, so I was quite honest.  What do I do for fun?  I replied, “Be myself.”

Just yesterday my radio clock awoke me to the ghoulish chorus of “Carmina Burana.”  (That would have been a more appropriate start to a Monday.)  I had to wonder how often “Carmina Burana” was confused with Carmen Miranda.  Who is to say that a choir in fruit-salad head dresses, chanting “Chica Chica Boom Chic”, wouldn’t be apocalyptic, too?

It must be what Carl Orff really had in mind.

p.s.  And let’s not forget the historic significance of this day: http://finermanworks.com/your_rda_of_irony/2009/09/12/turban-decay/

    Don’t you wish robocalls could be outlawed? But I suppose that SCOTUS (encouraged by Citizens United) would rule that the machine sending the calls has First Amendment rights.
