Driven to Incoherence (They / He, We / I)

with one comment

We can anticipate the response. (There will be no response). The particular, the deviant – not so much a deviation from the norm (in which, we know, the norm always plays puppet-master) but something from outside the system altogether. The "work of a solitary individual" or at least "individuals." Orders ignored, or there was at least a problem in transmission. Authorities are investigating the problem – the crime.

Take a look. (Via pas au-dela). Before it disappears someone should print it all out…

The whole thing balanced on the ability to make a he and a he and a he into a they, but to keep our we uncontaminated, know that this particular he (or he or he) is never we. Certainly never I.

With the photograph, the they slips closer to the he. The you. But not, apparently, close enough. Or too close, and thus the captions, which push the images back to the range of someone else’s joke.

Was dis my head?

The link will be closed down in a few days and then everything will be OK, OK?

Promise I will start posting regularly again once I either get a job or don’t get a job. I will find out in a week or so…

It’s a psychologically complex profession, academia. The up side is so up and the down side is so down with very little to stand on in between…
