Humorous One-Liners Can Say a Lot

Robert Stacy McCain, proprietor of The Other Mccain, writes post after post, paragraph after paragraph, sentence after sentence that are laden with quality thought, reasoning in a coherent, rational style. However, it is also true that some of his best statements are derived from what, at first, appear to be silly one-liners.

In an April 7, 2009 post titled If the GOP is Pandering to Right Wing Extremists, Why Isn't my Phone Ringing? Stacy discusses the recent recycling of complaints about certain elements that are making waves disrupting the glass smooth GOP pond. The 'big fish' in this little pond that live in the deep water are complaining that the minnows are disruptive at the water's surface clouding their view of the heavens.

Stacy sums up the method by which they complain:
I'm just askin' questions. BTW, does this tinfoil hat make my butt look big?
Quite a humorous, yet pregnant, question.

Many years ago, a friend of mine used to wear a pyramid on his head to class. Although he wasn't using it to protect his thoughts from being read or defending against thoughts or ideas from being implanted, it was of the same principle. He used it to focus all the wisdom of the Universe into his cerebral cortex.

I can only attest to the fact that he was reasonable in all areas of dispute. He would listen and argue coherently. A pyramid did not make his butt look big. As a matter of fact, it took all potential focus off of his rear. This is not so with those who wear tinfoil hats. They need protection from confusing logic that attempts to be introduced by aliens. In addition to the anatomic butt, there was an additional growth of a cranial derriere. Therefore, pyramidal head wear is superior to tin foil.

Incidentally, my pyramid-donning friend was a White long-hair from rural Georgia. His name was Cassius Clay. We opined that Muhammad Ali, The Greatest, actually changed his name in order to avoid being confused with the other Cassius Clay.
