For your entertainment pleasure, a brief list of cranky rants regarding violations of Old School rules.
#1 Dear VP: In a previous crank post I mentioned Vice President Joe Biden’s uncanny similarity to Larry Tate. He proves himself “Tateworthy” again when he described Republicans by saying, “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.” He did this at a $10,000 a plate fundraiser.
As someone who keeps up with politics at least partially for entertainment, I love this guy.
#2 Dear FB user: Too many people on Facebook post pictures of cats with some kind of joke or pseudo-inspirational message. I get it already. Cats are cute. Quit enslaving them as spokesmen for your platitudes.
#3 Dear Mr. Oblivious: If there is a line at the gas station (or even the possibility of a line), when you are done pumping gas MOVE YOUR CAR and don’t make the poor schmuck behind you wait while you go inside and buy your bbq pork rinds and Pepsi at 730am last Tuesday at the Sheetz gas station in Irwin on route 51 with the green CRV.
#4 Dear Mr. Oblivious’ 1st Cousin: Just because you think it’s OK to cuss in front of your kids, it’s not OK for you to cuss in front of mine. If in doubt, if it’s in Carlin’s 7 words you can’t say on TV, don’t say it in front of my kids.
#5 Dear Ms. Supermarket sushi: You’re not fooling anyone. You are usually two steps removed from a can of tuna.
Keep it Old School my friend,
The Old Man, Chris Dixon
