Before I start in on this special person, I'd like to explain a little about the inspiration for these posts. I base my little cartoons on a graduation speech that the communications theorist Neil Postman gave awhile back on Athenians and Visigoths. It's a good read and like Postman says, this is not completely historically accurate, but are used as metaphors. I do the same with these cartoons. They are my way of dealing with the willfully ignorant among us in a fun and humorous fashion. But, I encourage all to read Postman's speech, it's food for thought.
So, on to the moron who graced my presence last week when I was on my way from Detroit to West Bloomfield to work on some private sculptures. I was in the far left lane and needed to get over to the freeway. No one was in front and behind was completely packed with cars, bumper to bumper. My choices were obviously limited, so I waited to see how traffic would go. No one was moving from their current positions, so I sped up a little with my turn signal on. The guy next to me was having none of that and sped up just so I couldn't get over. The cars behind him kept pace, so there was no going that way. He just wasn't going to let me over. Well, I made my way over after a bit, basically cutting him off and he immediately slowed down. What makes someone who is all alone be such a dipshit? I added color to this one because he looked oh so special with his thick, white 80's sunglasses, chin up, never moving his head one way or the other. I'm sure he thought he was the shit.
They are everywhere.
