Random Friday: Featuring A True Genius, The World’s Oldest Bra, Sliced Bread and More
|July 20, 2012||Posted by billyrob under pop culture||
People throw around the word “genius” way too much.
Truth is, few really are.
With that said, consider the person who said this:
“Let’s see, we need to cast the star of Breaking Bad,
a man who’s dying of cancer and makes meth…
let’s hire the actor who played
the dad on Malcolm In The MIddle.”
Now that’s genius.
If you ever need a reminder of how far
the world has come, think about this:
Things were once so dull that if anything came along
that was in any way exciting they compared it to sliced bread,
as in “It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.”
After sliced bread it became
“It’s the greatest thing since the hula hoop.”
What happened between sliced bread and hula hoops?
And why nothing since?
The world’s oldest bra, from the 1400’s,
was discovered this week.
The man who owns what is the now
the world’s second-oldest bra
is upset because according to him
“Now I have nothing to talk about at dinner parties.”
It may not be today. It may not be next month.
But sooner or later the truth will come out:
James Dolan was the mastermind behind
the Jeremy Lin debacle.
“Judge Orders Farmer to Ditch Noisy Cowbells”
Or he could have said:
Headline That’s Late By About Two Years:
“Texting Dominates As Teens And Young Adults Make Fewer Phone Calls”
