Speaking of that …

That Cringe White House Video with Dancing Nurses Has a Really Dark Backstory

I am always astounded by the shit you read.
And amazed by the degree to which you gullibly swallow the garbage you read on 3rd rate infotainment web pages.

"Just Look UP!"
The Dance of the Nurses fits right in with not only your expressed interest in tasteless comedy, but your tasteless and humourous manifestations of personal reactions that you try and pass off as dialogue to the world, as if the world cares about your belly aching, which is one of the reasons why Buddha didn't advise seeking refuge in the world.

However, the Ring Around The Rosie dance has a more honest message than those nurses trained in science who declared ... It's my body, my choice to dance away all your troubles. All you gots to do is dance our tune, and if you don't no soup for you, but you can't say you didn't have a choice, just like all those science-trained nurses had a choice to get fired for not submitting to the jab against their better judgement. They probably figured that the nursing shortage gave them some job security and the Bosses would blink.

Their fundamental assumption, that proved to be wrong, is that their firing is suddenly a matter of health because the nursing shortage is a matter of healthcare.

Invalidation

There's valid invalidation, and there's invalid invalidation.

Such is language.

Appropriateness

*

No particular religious affiliation, if any, is required to appreciate this definition of appropriateness.

The dualistic life described below is the road less traveled by those with lively imaginative notions of the way things should be, rather than a clear vision of the way things are.

Ecclesiastes 3, KJV
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

From my trusty Heinemann English Dictionary (which is falling apart now):-

peculiar (say: pik-yoo-lee-a OR interpret: pec u liar)

strange, odd, or unusual.

or

as in pec_u_liar - eating shit and talking shit.

Get enough bread and you can get off the shit-sandwich diet.

In a universe where all things are possible, who would choose to eat shit-sandwiches?

A: No one. It's a choiceless diet.
