I basically wanted to get these messages across when selling Seuss to UWS ‘rents. Sometimes it worked. Most of the time, I was met with silence. #LifeOfAnActivistBookSeller
One year later and my “What Dr. Suess Books Were Really About” is still good for over 60k notes on Tumblr.
…yeah, when I saw these pictures going around, and noticed the “BuzzFeed” added to every picture, I searched “Dr. Seuss” on said website. Found that article. (I like to know where my amusing images come from, if I am able to.)
Terrence Moonseed: “But as we’ll see, it’s the catalyst for a whole catalog of catastrophes, calamities, as we reach the Terrencendental McKennical singularity”
Robert Foster: “But what’ll this mean for the fate of humanity?”
Terrence Moonseed: “It means the fiends that seek to deceive and keep us weak’ll reach a state of apogee, and it means that people cease the capacity for endless atrophy, that as a planet we rise from apathy and challenge the Draconian powers-that-be”
Rap news continues to impress me; I confess, the infusion of these views with the lyrical dexterity moves me; the satirical hilarity should be shared, truthfully- and as for posterity, I hope we survive and care to see it archived; record this point in time for those yet to be alive.
Summary of online article, appearing from various “news” sources: People who text message are prone to becoming digital-age Pinocchios because the target of their fibs isn’t present to witness their noses grow.
This is a terrible, terrible analogy.
Pinocchio was someone who could not conceal when he was untruthful.
Someone able to conceal the truth more easily because they are texting is the very opposite of Pinocchio.
The lyrics are poetry, and would greatly enhance anything they were made a part of. A speech at a wedding? This. A personal dedication in a card congratulating someone on the arrival of their firstborn? This. Your closing statements, as a valedictorian? This.
