The other day, I received a letter from a woman chastising me for my “mind-numbing” arrogance. In her letter, she asked me whether there was any question on any topic that I didn’t “think I had an answer for.” Actually, I’m glad she asked me that question because there are a number of things that have been bothering me lately. In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever ended a year with so many unanswered questions. I’d like to share a few with my readers, hoping that together we can find some answers.
Chicken McNuggets. I just heard a McDonald’s commercial saying that McNuggets are now made out of white meat. What were they made of before?
Ann Coulter. I mentioned the Ann Coulter action figure in one of my editorials and received no thanks from Ann. Don’t I deserve an autographed Ann Coulter action figure? I mean, does she think she’s better than me? If so, why does she think that? Is it because she’s good looking? Is it because she’s a great writer? Is it because she’s really good looking? And, finally, is my wife reading this?
Hypothetical Questions. Recently, a reader accused me of not telling the truth in one of my editorials. The portion that he questioned was actually a hypothetical scenario. Don’t people know that hypothetical examples are, by definition, untrue? And what if there were no hypothetical questions? Would the world be a better place?
The McRib Sandwich. What is this thing made of? Is it the same recipe they used before they got rid of it?
Communications Professors. Last week, the College Republicans appealed a decision to de-recognize them as an official student group. During their appeal, a professor called the president of the group “arrogant” and their advisor “paranoid.” He shouted them down every time they tried to make an argument. He also used a condescending voice just like that guy in the movie “Office Space” (did you get the memo I sent you?). The professor has tenure and teaches, of all things, communications. So, which one is easier to get, a hunting license or a PhD in communications?
Saddam Hussein. Why is everybody in the building so down today? Is it because we just captured Saddam Hussein?
