Bus absurdity

6 01 2011

Random paragraph I wrote for non-fiction class.


The best place to hear the most absurd things people will say is on the bus.  Two young men, probably in their early to mid twenties, dressed like typical skateboarders sat behind me on the number 20 bus.  One was telling the other about this TV show involving a man owning a prison.  One day, the warden made the prisoners change their uniforms to rabbit constumes, as it was around Easter time.

His friend quickly asked, “Is he gay?”

A Formula for Idiocy

5 01 2011

Something I conjured up in non-fiction class.  Does it make sense?  I was never good at math.

Formula for Idiocy

a = a person
b = ridiculous things people say

Formula:  a + a = b
if b takes place on a bus, b (ridiculousness) multiplies by 2:

so, a + a = 2b
What you do to one side, you must do to the other:

Formula: 2(a + a) = 2b

Exercise: if a = typical skateboarder, and there are two of them on a bus, find b.

Answer: 2(a + a) = 2b
b = talking about absurd television show involving a warden owning a jail, telling the inmates to wear rabbit costumes.

New formula:

x = stereotypical straight men’s behaviour
y = stereotypical gay men’s behaviour

if b ≠ x, ∴ b = y.

Exercise: Prove b = y.

Answer: ?
