HOW DO YOU DISCRIBE THE GRAND CANYON
Our language has become so diluted by TV, Politicians and “Teen Speak” that it is no longer possible to adequately describe people’s talents, or nature’s beauty.
The Grand Canyon used to be described as “Awesome” as in inspiring awe. Today, the latest Nike sneakers are awesome. World War II was once described as an “Epic” event. Today last night’s party was epic.
The Great Wall of China used to be “Huge”. Thanks to Paris Hilton, everything today is huge (pronounced huuuge!) The Crown Jewels were once “Fabulous”. Currently a new pair of shoes or a hair cut is fabulous.
“Gone With the Wind” was once a “Spectacular” movie. Now last night’s reality TV show was spectacular. When Rodger Bannister broke the four minute barrier for the one mile run it was incredible. It is now incredible when a seven foot basketball player dunks a ball.
It is not enough today that an event is epic, it is “Actually” epic, or “Totally” awesome, or “Really” huge, or “Incredibly” fabulous.
Justin Bieber’s latest recording is not only actually incredibly epically fabulous and totally spectacularly awesome; it is also huge.
The Grand Canyon is FUCKING BIG!!
