I know that's not very ladylike, but that's what happened. And I'm still laughing.
Read the whole thing, but here's the Extra Soooooper Dooooper Fabulous paragraph:
"Well, I’m always interested, I’m increasingly interested as I travel around America and the rest of the West, and what’s holding the joint up, because I think there’s what I think statisticians, and in fact, I think doctors, too, call the normality bias, that the way things are, and that people have a tendency to believe that the way things are now is the way they’re always going to be. And I’m basically going to say no, wait a minute, you can be like some French bon vivant of the 1890s strolling around all dapper and debonair, and inside, you’re all rotted away from tertiary syphilis, and you don’t even know it, yet. So I’m going to be doing a bit of the old apocalyptic doom mongering on that."
So, in summary-Mark Steyn has masterfully managed to insult both the French and the Western 'la la la not listening' (a.k.a "normality biased") masses in one sentence.Well worth your time!!!
And remember: COME ONE AND ALL TO STEYNAMITE - April 24 in downtown Toronto.
To all you Americans out there-it is just a 90 minute drive from Buffalo to Toronto, and about 4 hours by car from Detroit. If you live a little further afield, say Chicago (Midway), or Washington D.C (Dulles) there are great deals on Porter Airlines to come into our fair city. Porter Airlines absolutely rocks-you will seriously not want to ever fly another airline again once you fly Porter.
I suggested to Kathy earlier that we should have a Steynamite Tailgate Party. However, on second thought, I am a bit more of a pampered princess.
If people are up for it, we could think of organizing a Toronto Vast Right Wing Conspiracy dinner before the event.
