If you’re expecting some sort of deep religious or political criticism, this post won’t be it.
My wife put an Obama campaign sign in our window two years ago. Like most liberals, we’ve been too lazy to take it down. I noticed the red coloring on the sign had faded almost completely, which is what made me remember… the most ironic thing I ever saw.
I was driving around, minding my own business, when I passed a tanning salon. They put up posters in the storefront window. I could tell they were once images of bronze, swimsuit clad models. However, the sun had bleached the color right out of the poster, reducing the models to a washed out white.
A tanning salon… whose sole job it is… to darken people’s skin… by simulating the sun… displaying images of pale people… which were once golden skinned… until the sun’s rays burned out the color…
It was an infinite loop of irony. It was more ironic than McDonald’s sponsoring the Olympics.
