New York, NY (PRWEB) January 4, 2007
In January's free issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Humor Magazine, presents new humorous commentary and fiction, featuring "A Sentimental Journey To The Junkyard of Great Ideas."
Here's an excerpt:
Excuse our innocence. We used to think that great ideas have influence. But they seem to have been tossed in the junkyard by an alarming number of people, who are evidently guided by ideas that are pretty much the opposite of the ones we have in mind.
We missed the originals and grew sentimental about them. So we reflected on their fate. Here is a selection of them, along with what seem to be their current replacements:
Great Idea: The Sanctity of Life
Current Replacement: The Cheapness of Life
Great Idea: Life According to Reason
Current Replacement: Life According to Unreason
Great Idea: The Golden Mean
Current Replacement: Extremes of Every Kind
Great Idea: Thou Shalt Not Kill
Current Replacement: Kill to Make a Point
Great Idea: Love Your Neighbor
Current Replacement: Hate Your Neighbor
Great Idea: Perpetual Peace And Progress
Current Replacement: Perpetual War And Regression
Great Idea: Live and Let Live
Current Replacement: Die and Make Die
Great Idea: The Greatest Happiness for the Greatest Number
Current Replacement: The Greatest Misfortune for the Greatest Number
Great Idea: Sex is Beautiful
Current Replacement: Sex is Shameful
Great Idea: Self-Realization
Current Replacement: Self-Indulgence
Great Idea: Fellow Feeling
Current Replacement: Fellow Indifference
Great Idea: Magna est Veritas
Current Replacement: Minor est Veritas
It's enough to persuade an optimist to take the long view.
