Satire as a hobby
Being a smart ass can be fun
Yesterday I made up a story based on a concept from the excellent satirical website, The Babylon Bee. They are funny people who know how to make people laugh as they get a message across to them.
Just for fun I swiped the general concept of a piece they put forward that essentially said that recent polling had shown that the Democrats were so unpopular that even dead voters were going to vote Republican this fall.
So I tweaked it for all my Chicago readers. No one understands the dead vote better than them. I figured, even a dumb ass can be a smart ass, so I went for it. I called it the “BABBLE ON ME.” The whole thing was tongue in cheek but a few people actually subscribed! I was amazed. It was fun. I suspect they liked me better than the satire, but god bless ‘em. Both of them.
So here is a link to my smartassery. I have a feeling this endeavor will suffer from “failure to launch” but no astronauts were harmed in the making of it so I guess it’s okay. I consider it a trial balloon of the lead variety.
It’s likely that many of the articles I write here might be mistaken for satire anyway. Oh well, at my age I’m socially bulletproof.
