Alternate title for this post: Why did Brodie ever decide to check out of pop culture, journalism, religion and/or spirituality, the internet, and society in general?
No, really, look at that headline. And ponder the fact that it exists as a headline.
This is why the terrorists hate America.
I just… I can’t. I’m dead. I’m literally deceased. And I know that’s an incorrect use of the word “literally,” but that’s okay, because words don’t have meaning anymore. That the English language allows that headline up there to exist makes me want to burn all the books. But that’s a physical impossibility, because having read those eight words has murdered me somehow. I stopped believing in “the soul,” but I know now I was wrong, because mine has just been destroyed.
This is why we haven’t done a podcast since July. On some level, psychically or subconsciously, we must have known this headline was coming. Comedy is over, because you’re never going to craft a funnier sentence than “Ke$ha says she had sex with a ghost.”
See you all in Hell.
Well said Brodie. To quote the monster at the end of Bride of Frankenstein: “We belong dead.”
