Really Smart People Part 2

Smart people again – I guess they are not out of my system yet. They say if you have to explain a joke it is a bad joke. And, I will not die on this hill, that all my jokes are funny, but when it is ridiculous I would think a smart person would get it and not take me seriously. Now I guess I should not remove from the realm of possibilities that I am the one with the problem. But, for the moment let’s assume that it’s everybody else.
One of my most favorite blogs is very funny and is written by a lady named Holly - sure like I believe that. I think her real name is Edna. She for the most part makes fun of her husband. So, as a husband myself I think it is pretty much my job to stick up for him. Let’s skip the story and get straight to the real deal. I made a ridiculous comment on one of Holly's latest postings about how tap water when frozen, all the additives and compounds in tap water multiply. A blogger who said he was a pharmacist had to set me straight on how that comment was so stupid. Well I thought that was the point. His reprimand made me question his credentials. I am pretty sure anyone who passed 8th grade science would know that my comment was a joke, so how could he really be a pharmacists? Now I am not saying I passed 8th grade science but the report card said I did. You can believe that if you want. (FYI-Holly is much nicer than I am and removed the pharmacist's post)
On another occasion a really smart person with a title had to set me straight on a different ridiculous statement I made about how some crazy eyeliner singer guy – Adam I think - could not stay on pitch. He assured me he was the best singer he had ever heard. This antagonist said he was a professional and assured me because he was a professional he knew for a fact this Adam character was always on pitch. Now granted a professional in the music business might not be all that smart. Have you watched Inside Edition lately?

Regardless of who is right or who is wrong, I see a trend going on here. Now Dr. Laura would say – when something happens once there is a good chance it can be taken as the other person’s fault (well it might not be exactly what she said) but if something happens several times and the same person is involved than there is a real good chance it is the fault of the person that is always there. Hmmm….I am pretty sure I am the common person in these two misunderstandings. Oh, there is a third instance and that is when my wife misunderstands me but I can usually mark that up to she is the common person.
Now here is the problem – what am I to do? Some say, I just don’t have enough to do. They think anyone sitting around commenting on blogs in the first place kind of proves their point. Well, I can argue that one away easy. Just ask my wife, if I have enough to do, she will give you a long list of unfinished tasks around the house. In fact I have a secret list of things she doesn’t even know about.
I guess I will say this – ATTENTION all smart bloggers with titles behind your names who have been educated beyond your intelligence – IT’S A JOKE!
Wow, I feel so much better – Okay, I am ready for all your nasty emails and comments.

Maybe... the pharmacist is more of a smartallic than you and was actually making fun of smart people along with you and you were to dumb to get it. Ha!

I think the world is getting "smarter"... and Thank God I ain't smart...

Holly Kay said...

You think my name is EDNA? No, it's Holly for real! I forgot about that comment about Adam. Ha ha! That one was funny. But the one from the pharmacist was NOT funny.

Mr Mind Meander,
I aint so sure I understand all that nonsense. But I will hafta trust ya'll on that one. If your glad I'm glad.

Holly - Is something wrong with the name Edna? You don't like the name Edna? Sorry, after all my ranting...I guess that was kinda rude, I guess I should read my own posts.

Holly Kay said...

Oh, I like the name Edna...well, I guess. Never thought about that. No worries, not rude at all. It's funny imagining having another name. For example, imagine that your name is...say...Phil. Doesn't that feel odd?

Grayquill said...

Phil does feel odd very odd. But, I think the worst would be Halbert, now that would be a bad horrible name...
I am glad Holly is your real name it is much nicer than Edna...I will never tell you why I thought of Edna
