Le Débutant

Don’t let that artsy title fool you, I’m not a particularly cultured individual. The only french term you are likely to encounter more than once in my writings would probably be French Fries. And I’m not even sure if that is indeed a French term. Now that I think about it, I have a sneaking suspicion that it isn’t. Well if it isn’t, then please re-read that second line and replace the words in italic with “France”.  France is France in French, right? Right?! Right.

Okay, so this is my blogging debut and here I am making my mark in the Blogosphere. Yes, it’s more of a dot than a proper mark. And yes, many would be tempted to refer to this dot as a stain, but shush now, you’re ruining a historic point in history. I think I’ll celebrate this momentous occasion with a “.” because a period is a dot. And maybe even a “,” because a comma starts off with a dot. But not a “{“, not only because a second bracket has little to do with dots but also because it is the root cause of the ills that is plaguing the human race today. I hate how it starts off with a curve and then reaches the peak in the middle and then painstakingly proceeds to produce a mirror image of the first half of its journey. Like we have all the time in the world to make those perfect curves and the arrogant peak in the middle of a flippin’ math exam.

fries, ketchup, dots, commas and of course the petulant second brackets!

All the good people of the world should unite and raise their collective voice against the atrocities of the second bracket. The unjust nature of its shape has gone unquestioned for far too long, and I’m afraid that if stern measures aren’t taken to correct it immediately, we might have another Watergate on our hands. Yes, that is exactly how serious the whole thing is.

I’m no expert in this field but my common sense tells me that it might help if the Government opened up a 911 styled hot-line, were people could call toll free 24/7 and report their complaints and grievances against this beastly notation that has undoubtedly become a symbol of everything that is wrong with the world today. I can’t believe nobody’s doing shit about the second bracket, while there are countries waging wars for something as trivial as oil.

Please participate in the following poll and show your support for the movement against the barbarities of the second bracket. Thanks! 🙂
