If only I was so attached to going to the gym! I didn’t write yesterday morning and I really missed it! Initially just sidetracked, and then a plan formed for a little something different – it was a really bad idea guys…
I thought I might try a bit of form writing…play around a bit…take an innocent rhyme structure and reconfigure with some news nonsense and see if that little recipe ends up a witty little political satire piece…I now know that I don’t have the stomach for it…or maybe it was just the subject matter…
What kept coming back to me was that I saw Larry Flynt as well as the Girls Gone Wild fella, whoever he may be, talking about needing a bailout package…what??? Medicaid doesn’t pay for my great aunt’s hearing aids, and these guys think the government should support their habit, I mean business?? That is so very crazy!!! SOOO, I kept thinking about this and all of a sudden this child’s rhyme came into my head and I wondered what sort of a combination I could come up with…the problem is I really don’t know much about Mr. Hustler. I need to do some research! I was getting pretty excited about this…my own little writing assignment! If you’re not a writer, or a reader, or a person who gets excited about playing with words, just bear with me or click the little X for your own comfort:)
So, I googled Mr. Flynt and printed out his little Wickapedia bio as well as information about one of his many first amendment lawsuits…this one involving the Reverend Jerry…so I had this set aside for a moment to plow in and pull key pieces and crop to fit the cute little structure I had in mind. People, I did get through his short bio and as I was reading I just kept thinking that this is not true and he paid someone to make up this history…when I was finished, I didn’t even move to the first amendment information, because what I read was so distasteful that I just really felt I needed a shower! Oh, I also read the little history of Hustler magazine which described reoccurring segments which only hacked me off further! This guy is a real piece of work! Mind you, I am NOT judging him, I am just curious and unfamiliar with a lot of his experiences and choices! If this were a tell all, I could list all sorts of nonsense I’ve gotten myself into so you would realize I AM NOT terribly easily shocked, I don’t think so anyway…hmmm…more to think about.
What I decided I should not think about any further, not even enough to whip up a witty political sattire bit, was information regarding Mr. Flynt. Playing with words regarding him just felt wrong…I might even go so far as to say dirty…
SO – no political satire today – just a list of things that bug me:
