Poseurs

Why does everybody want a bad reputation?
You're so bad, you'll be a big sensation.

- Fleming and John

Read this post from Proverbial Wife, which I just read in the Christian Carnival.

Now, read this overweening response to one of Marla's offhand remarks. Today's meditation: Why are there so many poseurs who feel an overwhelming need to remind us all how much of a badass they are? And why are there so many people happy to affirm them? ("You done told her good, Cletus. That'll larn her, haw haw haw.")

(No trackbacks. Deal with that, buddy.)
