Douchebag Redux

Apparently, It's not just "Douchebag."

Over the past week and a half there have been several social memes that have emerged over and again in different places, in differing contexts and within completely different spheres of influence.

"Douchebag" is one, but so are: "ass hat," sex change," and "refrigerated milk cases."

All of which makes me feel better about the douchebag thing...

Today, for instance, there were sex change comments made about me in the office, on email, and on certain social networking sites. Now look, I am all man. I have no breasts, and I have no vagina (or mangina)... I'm not taking girlie hormones. I don't even wear girl clothes. And NO, the kilt is not a skirt.

Yet in the course of the last 36 hours, it has come up over and over and over...

Last week, I ended up discussing a certain refrigerated milk case story with two completely unrelated people. Then, Dave blogged about the very same topic, the very same day.

And don't get me started on "Ass Hat!"

Perhaps these things are mere coincidences.

More likely, I suspect, I am some sort of pan-dimensional being. A vortex, if you will. A quantum singularity of social jackassery.

Oh! That's another one! "Jackassery!" It's popped up many times in the last few days. Even right here on the Lounge.

Yes, quite certainly, I emit a gravitational force for these little trains of thought. They, like you, are drawn to me...

Stand back, I must warn, at your own peril. If you get too close, you will certainly be called an "ass hat" by someone...

  1. Did you ever figure out what that crusty stuff was? If it has a name, I would call you that.

  2. It's like when someone says "Plate of Shrimp..."

  3. I don't know you well enough yet to call you anything along these lines, but rest assured I am making a list, and someday...someday
