I was joking around about boycotts on Facebook today, and one of my friends made this. I don’t think I’ve ever actually participated in a boycott. They often seem to me to be an attempt at a de facto suppression of speech. I don’t know if I’m a so-called free speech absolutist, because that just feels like a loaded term, but I’ve gotten into trouble with both liberals and conservatives with my views in that area, which others tend to view as extreme.
But I guess that’s besides the point. People think this picture is funny. A college friend of mine out in Texas shared this in a few places after politely asking if he could make it “go viral.” (He asked the meme-maker’s permission, but not mine.) This is the same guy I told you about who’s a master pyro-technician and will likely puncture the ozone layer at some point in his lifetime.
Anyway, now there are a bunch of people out in the Lone Star State laughing at me, and I’m not sure why. (They weren’t privy to the Facebook conversation that spawned this.) It’s probably just my goofy-ass face.
I’m not even sure I remember taking this picture. I might have been in some kind of very chipper fugue state.
