That’s my new thing to say. Are you on Crack?
I use it when I know someone is really probably not on crack but, their thinking could be better. For example:
Actor Ben Stein (Bueller, Bueller, Bueller) recently posted this on the American Spectator.
The people who have been laid off and cannot find work are generally people with poor work habits and poor personalities. I say “generally” because there are exceptions.
While it’s easy to criticize him since he lives in Beverly Hills, it should be noted that he majored in economics at Columbia University and also went to Yale Law School where he was voted valedictorian.
Hey Ben….what about those poor out of work people in the Gulf who were affected by the oil spill? Did their poor work habits cause the oil spill ?
How many people are out of work?
Here is a start:
The number of fishermen affected by the spill is estimated to be in the tens of thousands. In Louisiana alone, there were 11,191 commercial fishing permits issued to residents in 2009, and each license means an average of about about 2.5 people per boat, because the numbers don’t include deckhands, said George Barisich, president of the United Commercial Fisherman’s Association.
Makes me wonder if crack sales are up in Beverly Hills….
Other possible crack candidates
Snookie (I know…who?”) She’s one of those Jersey Shore cast mates. She recently gave this interview:
“The negative stuff? I get off on it. Because the only reason why people talk negative is because they’re jealous. Every time they call me a midget, Oompa-Loompa, orange, they’re just jealous. It makes me want to be more ridiculous and more stupid” — Snooki in Rolling Stone.
According to Wikiepedia...Her nickname, Snooki, was given to her by her friends in middle school, and is based on the character “Snooki the cootchie crook” from the film Save the Last Dance because she was the first of her friends to make out with a boy.
In 2004, prior to Jersey Shore, she was criminally charged for selling alcohol to minors at a party at her house, after underaged party guest was killed in a drunk driving accident right after the party. The parents of child who was killed told the press they felt that Polizzi was now “glorifying alcohol abuse” on her show and that in their opinion, Polizzi didn’t care about what happened to their son.
If someone were on crack…they would think that yes…we are jealous of orange Oompah Loompas.
And then there is Mel…
Crack may be a good thing for him.
