The Brave Iconoclast

Greg Gutfeld sees some journalism school kids use Fox News as a punchline in a rap:
So, no surprise: the student raps benign pap that his professors and like-minded dorm-rats would applaud – from railing against complacency, to never losing touch with “his humanity.” But I’ll repeat the part the kid really wanted them to hear:

“There’s no need to hear crazy, or create a false sense of parity, like Fox News and Hannity.”

And that’s the big point: That when applying for a job, the student knows to regurgitate the shared assumptions of the elitists around him. In short, if you bash Fox News, you might land an unpaid internship at Mother Jones.
Thus sayeth the rebel Gutfeld, in defiance of what the editorial line at Big Hollywood and, um, Fox would have him say.

"What's that?"


"In your pants. Is that a...?"

"What are you talking about?"

"It is. You have a lawn mower in your pants."

"That's ridiculous."

"Dude, it's right there. It's a goddam Sears lawn mower. You've got it stuffed in your pants."

"No I don't. Are you insane?"

"C'mon, look! There's the handle, and the engine, and the blade is right on your..."

"We reject these scurrilous accusations of lawn mower possession. Anyone can see you're just making them up out of partisan fervor."

"But...No! You can't stand there with a lawn mower in your pants and DENY you have a lawn mower in your pants!"

"Of COURSE I can't. That's all the evidence you need to prove I most certainly do NOT have any such lawn maintenance implement in my trousers."

"But, but, EVERYONE can see it. It's a fucking LAWN MOWER and you've got it stuffed in your pants!"

"That's clearly untrue. We can check with my colleagues. Many, if not most of them will confirm there is no lawn mower, and my pants are in fact completely without gardening tools of any kind."

"That's just...HOLY SHIT!! All your "colleagues" have lawn mowers in their pants too, fer crissakes!"

"Oh, now you're just being shrill."

Everybody regurgitates shared assumptions - ONCE. Then they learn not to share assumptions with people who haven't washed their hands.
