Stupidly Worded Sign Irks Adjuct Instructor
Fort Wayne, IN--Gloria Diaz is appalled at a sign advertising tattoos that are “temporary” yet last forever.
“What the fuck is that?” Says Diaz. “How can tattoos be temporary, yet last forever? I was so upset at the sign, I didn’t go and bother to ask, like it said.”
Diaz teaches basic writing, and feels this sign is an indication of the end of basic communication. Or worse.
“This is ‘doublespeak’ just like in ‘1984.’ That was a book by George Orwell, which probably the vast majority of the readers of this blog aren’t familiar with. Morons.”
When asked how she felt about text messaging, Diaz’s face turned red, she started sputtering indignantly and collapsed from what was an apparent heart attack. She is recovering in a Fort Wayne hospital.
