The Boy and I watched the Plinkett reviews of the Star Wars prequels, where they kept showing a clip of Rick McCallum saying something like “It’s like poetry. It rhymes.” whenever the prequels lamely ripped off an idea from the first (better) movies. By the end, Plinkett is interjecting “SHUT UP!!” after saying it.
It’s kinda funny.
But we had our own little rhyming poetry moment this week as signs went up proclaiming “If You See A Downed Power Line Don’t Wrap It Around Your Testicles As A Party Joke!”
That wasn’t precisely it. The message is something about staying away and calling 911. This reminds me of the reckless driving ads a few years ago. The Powers That Be have now decided people need to be warned away from power lines.
Which is probably true.
But what are the odds the people who most need to be warned can actually read?
