Q: What do you call a man with two heads? A: Vincent. Why do you do that? I don't understand. Is it some sort of joke? I don't get it. There aren't even any men with two heads, and yet you are going around calling them Vincent? Is it some sort of affectation? You're not eighteen anymore, are you sure that sort of 'please think I'm interesting' obviously contrived affectation conjures up the of effect that you're going for? I am assuming, of course, that you're not just doing it to amuse yourself. And don't get all 'well yes, actually, I am just doing it to amuse myself, so Hockney to you with brass flippers!' if your amusement derives imagining how interesting it makes you look. That falls in category one, and you know it. Even if you really are doing it only for yourself, is it really that enjoyable that it's worth the impression you give over? Oh, I forgot. You don't care what anyone else thinks. Sure. That's why you don't try. Right.
Here at It Is What It Is we are eagerly awaiting pope2you.net going live. It may be live by the time you read this, at the time of writing it's just a logo thing. We may very well bring you a report on the website tomorrow. Although we haven't yet seen it we expect to shower the wonderful site with praise. However, in the very unlikely event that it's worthy of mockery we will be obliged to take the piss. And if it's worthy of disingenuous anger, well, again, we will be duty-bound to comply. Such is out editorial independence that we would do that, even though it would hurt us to do so, believing as we do that the pope is a wonderful man who would never let his kayfabe lead him to give advice on the best way to stop people dying of AIDS that he knew was wrong, as he knows how influential he is and bears that influence with the utmost responsibility. We only wish we were holy enough to understand the the costumes.
I read about the website in an article in The Guardian. Your new Facebook friend: the Pope was the original headline, but it was changed, just possibly before the article mentioned that they'd decided that he wasn't going to have a page on Facebook, which means you can't be his friend on Facebook. It's most unsporting the way these newses try to kill my buzz by having stupid headlines I can slap them down on and then switching them. They should stand firm and proud and take what comes. In fact, they should be deliberately using headlines that leave themselves vulnerable to my analysis. That would be what we in the business call 'magnanimity', and it's regarded as an admirable trait. And you know they want my admiration. But no, foolish pride, they have to be all with the 'we don't need your admiration' front. Remind you of anyone you know? *coughvincentcough*
that's all from me for now
see you around
