I’ve come to the conclusion that I need a better outlook on life. This pandemic crap, not to mention all the political b.s. everywhere I look, and the protests in the street, and the racial tension, and the killings, and politicians flapping their gums about crap they know nothing about, and care even less about, and, and, and…. I don’t know about you, but I’ve about had enough.
What I need is a change. So, I picked up a copy of a book that is going to get me out of the funk that all the above mentioned stuff has put me in. As has been said, “I’m tired as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.” This book is going to do the trick. I just know it is.
Well, I’m not too far into it. And already I’ve come across something that I just have to share. It hits the nail on the head. I think if everyone would realize what has been written, things would be so much better. Here, let me quote from the pages of a so far very good piece of writing:
“Here’s all you need to know about men and women: Women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid. It’s not the only reason, but it’s a big one. And by the way, if you don’t think men are stupid, check the newspaper. Ninety-nine percent of all the truly horrifying shit going on in this world was initiated, established, perpetrated, enabled or continued by men. And that includes the wave and the high five, two of history’s truly low points.
“But as I say, besides knowing that men are stupid, it’s also important to remember that women are crazy. And if you don’t think women are crazy, ask a man. That’s the one thing men aren’t stupid about; they know for sure, way down deep in their hearts, that women are straight-out fuckin’ nuts.
“But it doesn’t just happen; it isn’t an accident. Women have good reason to be nuts, the main one being that in the course of life, compared with men, they have far more to put up with; they bear greater burdens. Think of it this way: In the Big Cosmic Cafeteria, as human beings move down the chow line of life and reach that section where the shit is being spooned out, women are given several extra portions.”
As far as I see it, that about sums it up quite nicely, don’t you think? If we all realized this, then life would be so much better. For sure, it would be calmer—maybe. That, I suppose, would depend on how stupid a man acts at any one particular moment in time.
Oh, I forgot to tell you the title of the book. Grab you a copy sometime. The author is George Carlin and the title of the book is “When Will Jesus Bring The Pork Chops?”
I’ve got to cut this short. There’s a lot of book left and it’s calling my name.
Good night, Mrs. Jackson, wherever you are.
