Girls Taking Pictures of Themselves From Above

Dear Girls Taking Pics From Above,

We get it. You have boobs... at least from this angle.

But guess what -- you don't see me holding my camera at my knees and taking pictures of myself. I'm not going around posting pictures trying to accentuate a bulge. And why don't I do it? Because that would be ridiculous.

And yet, I keep on seeing pictures like this:

Look ladies, don't expect guys to respect your opinion when you feel obligated to consistently volunteer what you look like from an NBA center's perspective. You are advertising lust and little else, so if that is not the message you want to be sending.... you should consider a change in lifestyle.

Dear Epistemologists,

I think you've gone a little too far. Epistemology? Really? The study of knowledge... of knowing what we know? That just drips with intellectual arrogance. Knowledge alone isn't enough for you people, apparently that's a little too pedestrian for you. You're caught up studying the knowledge of knowledge.

And where's it going to stop? Are there going to be epistepistemologists, people who study how epistemologists know what they know about knowing?

Look, I know that you know that a lot of people know that knowledge is highly debatable, that infallibilism and indefeatability are unproven. And I know that you know that I know. But did you know that I know that you knew? No, of course you didn't, you idiot.

Epistemologists, come back down to earth. You need a vacation.

People Who Want to Make This Country Safer

Dear Safety-Conscious Citizens,

Because Christmas is right around the corner, I'd like to share my feelings on gun control. You see, Christmas at my house doesn't begin until the clay pigeons come out. Partridge in a pear tree? Not for long -- we're gunning that partridge down and having a holiday feast. A lot of people dislike guns because they kill people. But so do bullets folks. If you want to legislate guns, you have to start legislating homicide, and that's a slippery slope my friends --a slippery slope indeed.

As for me, the debate starts where America started: on the frontier. I have some very close relatives, who on their own conscience, have decided to shun the commercials trappings of civility and live in the mountains. They eat meat. They don't kill for sport, but don't think for one second they couldn't. Anyway, last week one of my forest relatives who lives in a pine-needle lean-to, a man with nothing but the flannel on his back, sent me a very interesting text message. This text shared his frustration with the constant harassment from "rangers" for his gun permits. This man can barely read the second amendment, and here he is supposed to know about licenses. He got fined for shooting a bear and finishing the job with a bayonet because he lacked the proper documentation! Unbelievable.

Gun control is making America safer, for the bears who want to kill us all. This is bad form.

I know what you are thinking: what can I do to make a difference? How can I make America safer? I suggest showing your support for my family this holiday season by supporting your own families, giving them semi-automatics --the perfect stocking stuffer. And may we all be safe with our guns. There are plenty of psychos out there.

People Squinting

Dear People Squinting,

Let’s say you want to invest in your future. Sure, you could get an education. You could even build up your 401k. But when you want to get serious about your future, you get serious about eye protection. The sooner the better. You don't wait until you stank to spray the cologne or applicate the flaky white stuff -- you preempt the stank. What is true about armpits is true about eyepits. Face it -- when you take care of your eyes, your eyes take care of you.

That’s why Solar Shields is the only brand of eye style I endorse. It’s also the only brand endorsed by the AARP. That’s right, America’s Greatest Generation sports the Shields. They fought Nazis; now they fight cataracts. UV stands for ultra violent.Solar Shields provide 1,000% UV protection -- this prevents your eyes from melting. They also discourage photosynthesis in people with green eyes. (Believe me, I have green eyes -- they used to be busy reversing carbon emissions, but now they are on vacation and loving it).

Durable? They’re 1,000% plastic. Floatable? They’re 1,000% plastic. Comfortable? They’re 1,000% plastic -- you can liquefy, soften, and mold them to fit an ill-shapen head.

Bigger is better. Wrap that concept around your brain, your eyes, and your future.
