Rites of Passages are Elitist.

Postby Funkpocket » Thu Sep 09, 2010 9:06 pm

Are Rites of Passages Elitist? Maybe that's why they work so well for religion. How about psychedelics? Rites of Passage? Elitist? DMT?

Inside jokes are Rites of Passage.

Totally elitist. I mean who's ever heard of anyone but rich white people being born, getting married* or dying?

Anyone that actually buys those big fucking jugs of mayonnaise from Cosco is an elitist.

Mayonnaise is the first in a long line of reasons to dislike the French.

Begians are awesome, they invented french fries and have the most brutal one-day bike race of the season, Paris-Roubiax.

I have no problems with the French, we would be screwed without them -- probably still a part of the UK or Spain.

And the French RIOT in the streets when their government tries to make them work more than 32 hours a week. I don't mean a bunch of dirty rich-kid hipsters with signs, they break shit and light shit on fire.

How can anyone not love that?

Something about the way that they talk through their nose. And then they surrendered to the germans in the 1870s because they didn't like the Paris Commune and then spent years bitching about losing Alsace Lorraine.

Besides, elitist pretentious people like me know home-made mixes of horseradish mustard with some added mustard seeds and extra horseradish are far superior.

I never met him and as much as I admire beating cancer and winning the TDF, there are other people who did more in their cycling careers like Eddy Merckx, Mario Cippolini and Marco Pantoni, pardon my bad spelling.

I like Armstrong's bike shop in Austin but that's for the location, awesome employees, service and selection. I can do without the large prints of Armstrong on the wall. The shop's cafe, Juan Pelota (sorta roughly means "one ball") makes a slammin' chai. It has a patio and is in an oddly good location on 4th and Nueces, around the corner from the Pfluger bridge, the bike path and other Austin goodness. (Why did they have to name the path after him? Why no someone else?)

Maybe the cancer made him less of an asshole. I have no idea.

Armstrong personally? I'm neutral and have other things to think about.

Or maybe the Tea Party version of "elitist," which is as distorted as "patriotic" and "freedom." I guess anyone who is educated, middle class and wants to live better and have a better community is elitist, but billionares and some lowly millionares are "hard working Americans."

Sometimes being an alcoholic, coke addict legacy Yale grad is OK, but your name has to be Bush. Developing an economic plan that cripples the nation, represses worker's rights, sends jobs overseas while enriching the military industrial complex and the upper 2% on the backs of everyone else is OK also, but your name has to be Reagan.

Mayonnaise is totally elitist, but I'm too ultra elitist to lower myself far enough to be merely "elitist." That's so last season.
