The Tao of Words

As Steve Martin once said, “…some people have a way with words.  Other people, um, oh, uh, not have way, I guess.”

But METAPHOR has way, that’s why Mr. Fu misses the Screedblog, even though he agrees with METAPHOR that it is a chore writing about well entrenched topics of which others hold the incorrect view:

I don’t consume a lot of high-fructose corn syrup; no one in this house does. Why? Because I don’t buy it. I don’t buy many products that have it. Delta Corn Force doesn’t break into the house in the middle of the night and force everyone to consume corn syrup at gunpoint. Look: I’m opposed to farm subsidies. It’s pork. Corn-fed pork. But there’s something else at work here, and it’s the same old tut-tut gullet-nannies who can’t bear the fact that you can get a meal at McDonald’s for two bucks, and you like it. STOP LIKING WHAT YOU LIKE. People are choosing the wrong food, for some strange peculiar reason. We have to make them stop doing that.

METAPHOR, writing the words that Americans won’t, or can’t (or cant?).  Read the whole thing.

Later in that Bleat METAPHOR may be acknowledging the presence of his online stalker by referencing the original film “The Wicker Man” that he neglected to mention yesterday.  Was that so hard?  All a stalker wants is a little attention.  It’s not like anyone is asking for your immortal soul (look for the cymbal monkey, can’t link from here, grrrr)!
