The Power Of The Asshole

Would you consider this week’s Dustinland comic to be NSFW? I think it’s debatable. I mean, asshole is a curse, but it’s certainly not a four-letter word. It’s one of those borderline curses. Like, I wouldn’t want my kid using it but if he was 14 and it slipped out, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. I mean, we all say it. We all think it. It’s just the perfect word for that kind of person. And sadly that kind of person is everywhere. And I have been thinking about it a lot lately, because there are so many troubles in the world today being caused by so few people. It just seems like assholism will be an eternal problem that we may never be able to fully combat.

  1. Bitter Scribe

    IDIOT, n.
    A member of a large and powerful tribe whose influence in human affairs has always been dominant and controlling. The Idiot’s activity is not confined to any special field of thought or action, but “pervades and regulates the whole.” He has the last word in everything; his decision is unappealable. He sets the fashions and opinion of taste, dictates the limitations of speech, and circumscribes conduct with a dead-line.

    –Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary
