AB Cares Only about Profits, Which is Precisely Why the Boycott Needs to Continue

Russell Brand mocked the boycott, nothing that big corporations aren't moral animals and saying something along the lines that they just reflect the monolithic culture of the moment.

I didn't follow his reasoning entirely, but my reaction was, "Yeah, and we don't want a monolithic culture that looks like Dylvan Mulvaney, much less a Mulvaney culture that is relentlessly jammed down our throats."

Excuse the Pun in that Last Headline

Jeremy Bentham and Karl Marx loathed the pun, but they were left-hemispheric jackasses. The pun might be a low form of humor, but all harmless humor is good humor, regardless of the joke's social status.

Freud stooped to punning, referring to the Christmas season as “the alcoholidays.” Lamb regarded punning as one of the great tripods of life’s pleasures, the other two being smoking and drinking gin. He said he hoped that “the last breath I draw in this world will be through a pipe, and exhaled in a pun.” Max Eastman, in his book The Enjoyment of Laughter, takes a dim view of punning. He says of one Ogden Nash effort, “It is not a pun: it is a punitive expedition.” But that is a pun too. Groucho Marx said to me, “For a professional comedian to fall back on a pun is a confession of failure, like telling a dirty joke.” But he was the man who, asked about his safari in Kenya, replied, “We shot two bucks. That was the only money we had.” Paul Johnson, Humorists.
