Waiting for 2010 #125: Jackasses and Werewolves

This is what I tweeted sometime yesterday:

When people say, "It takes one to know one," RE: [President] Obama calling Kanye [West] a "jackass," I hope they realize they're calling themselves one, too.
Now, it's been years and years since I took that general education-level college course on logic and reasoning, but here's my (quasi-)"proof" that expands upon my tweet:

1. A rude person is a "jackass."
2. If you assert that it takes a jackass to know a jackass, and
3. You also think that Kanye West is a "jackass" for his recent (and recurrent) rude behavior, then
4. You are a jackass.

Therefore, you just called yourself a jackass, too.

Alternatively, and this is a bit of a stretch,
1. A rude person is a "jackass."
2. If you assert that it takes a jackass to know a jackass, and
3. You don't think that Kanye West is a "jackass" for his recent (and recurrent) rude behavior, and
4. An ignorant person is also a "jackass," then
5. You are an ignorant person for not recognizing that a rude person is a jackass, and
6. You are also a jackass.

Therefore, you just called yourself a jackass, too. QED, beeyotch.

OK, that was fun, skewering the fearmongrels who are so anti-Obama, that they even pick on him for the most trivial of things. Realistically, the vast majority of Americans believe that Kanye's outburst was a douchey thing to do, so the chances are good that the fright-wingers and the President agree on this non-issue issue. However, various members of the fear-right who used the "It takes one to know one" insult are so blinded by their own fear/hate/anger, that they attempt "humor" to make an otherwise agreeable situation (not for Kanye West, though) a point of partisan contention. Rant over.

Do you know what's more fun? Me trying to peddle some of our latest wares on this blog, of course! This time, in addition of stick persons, we have werewolves and stuff:


"Wolf happens." This is either bizarrely romantic or horrifically gruesome. In any case, the Werewolf is giving the situation a thumbs up!


"Sick wolf happens." If the above design was gruesome, then the Werewolf is surely paying it for in the above drawing.


That's all for today, which has been a pretty productive day. Oh yes, and DeRamos.org will soon receive a much-needed facelift. This blog has looked this way since '07, so it is definitely time for a change!
