Human Beings have always been arrogant self indulging ass weasels. Rau-og-ga, the first to discover fire pranced about like a circus clown, waving fire over his head until he caught his hair on fire and his friends dumped him head first into the river. Sadly, they had not discovered the link between air and breathing so Rau expired after the first five minutes under water.
But no one could have predicted that the internet, computers and digital smartphones could propel the entire human race to Olympic levels of self indulgence and ass weaselry.
Evidence number 1) The “Selfie” Stick.
Evidence number 2) Search Amazon for selfie stick and you will see pages and pages of various possibilities. You can view selfie sticks until the cows come home! And even after half of them shower and read the evening paper!
Just try to look up the word “humble” in any modern dictionary. It has been removed. No one had a definition for it anymore.
What selfie stick has been stuck up my butt to get me this riled up? Movie review sites, especially Rotten Tomatoes. Zipping through the 9,732 possible crappy movies on cable to watch, I often would look them up online to try to get an idea about the flick. I immediately skip the “professional critics” as they define the term Ass Weasel more than most. I would read the audience reviews, thinking I might get a regular person’s take. Good luck. Everyone is a prima donna self indulging chimp. Some of these reviews are longer than the movie script! Don’t these people have jobs? The entire review is an exercise in self importance, how intellectual they can sound.
Everyone wants their own star on the Hollywood walk of fame.
I just want to watch a not so crappy movie.
