The boys and girls at Facebook decided that I was in need of some social distancing for cross-posting a piece from Gerard Van der Leun over at American Digest from March 8 and sent me to the gulag for 7 days for violating “community standards.”
The piece was short and sweet and said:
10 Commandments are so silly, so quaint. Here are the new rules:
- EAT THE BUGS
- LIVE IN THE POD
- WORK IN THE CUBICLE
- ACCEPT THE TRANNIES
- ABORT THE BABY
- WELCOME THE REFUGEES
- BELIEVE THE NEW YORK TIMES
- GIVE UP THE GUNS
- KEEP THE SMARTPHONE ON YOU AT ALL TIMES
Life is a series of lessons each one of which will be repeated until you learn it. This old lesson you persist in not learning goes something like this. Pay attention, it will be on THE FINAL EXAM.
Finally, it linked the reader to The Who and “We Won’t Get Fooled Again.”
Actually, I’m kinda disappointed Zucks didn’t get me for something I’d actually written…guess I gotta up my game.
