Not Everyone Gets Me
First-time, only-time Thinga-reader Marc wrote in today to ask:
“Are you an idiot? Getting a hamster will make a kid a serial killer?”
He was responding to my article, Electronic Hamsters are the Best Pets for Toddlers, in which I establish that if you give your toddler a real, living pet hamster, he will be mentally harmed, a damaged child, a serial killer by his 21st birthday.
I sometimes forget that not everyone gets me, perhaps not even frequent readers. I was disappointed by the cool reception to yesterday’s pink rant, but maybe pink rants are getting old. Or maybe a majority of my readers have the word “juicy” positioned just above their rumpus.
Where am I going with this? Nowhere I think, and fast.
