The Thing About Parrots

The Bathos Of Mediacrity

Parrots live like 70 years. Cut off from reality, they tend to lose their fucking minds after living with us for several years or so, but then who the fuck wouldn’t?

The talking heads that parrot fake news into our living rooms every night each demand about half a million salary per year. And like parrots, they tend to lose their fucking minds after several years of living cut off from reality. We should set them free, but it would probably kill them. The collapse of the media started with the collapse of the world trade centers. Teaching parroting peacocks to say Mea Culpa won’t really help them. Teach a parrot to say sorry, and you’ll be the one who’s sorry.

I wouldn’t subscribe to The Young Jerks, but I do watch some of the Jimmy Dore shows. He does tend to flog a dead horse, and get his mix all talked up, but his points are usually perfectly valid.
