Lemony Snicket on Occupy Wall Street

Posted by on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 8:02 AM

Funny, true stuff:

5. There may not be a reason to share your cake. It is, after all, yours. You probably baked it yourself, in an oven of your own construction with ingredients you harvested yourself. It may be possible to keep your entire cake while explaining to any nearby hungry people just how reasonable you are.

6. Nobody wants to fall into a safety net, because it means the structure in which they’ve been living is in a state of collapse and they have no choice but to tumble downwards. However, it beats the alternative.

Read the whole thing. Thanks to Slog tipper Luckier. (Also relevant is the OccupyWriters page.)

11. Historically, a story about people inside impressive buildings ignoring or even taunting people standing outside shouting at them turns out to be a story with an unhappy ending.
