Sad Cookie Cat

You are the classic Shakespearean tragedy of the lolcat universe. The sad story of a baking a cookie, succumbing to gluttony, and in turn consuming the very cookie that was to be offered. Bad grammar ensues.

I was teaching today. Which is to say, I was sitting in a classroom quite a lot.

First Lesson: I have eleven students on paper - and one turned up.

Second Lesson: My one student needs to go somewhere else, so I have a gloriously empty class.

Fortunately - or not - the school library (or "Resource Center") needs sorting out. So I spend a fascinating ninety minutes cataloging it. Really, really fascinating.

Third Lesson: On paper, five. In the room, one. Sitting an exam.

Fourth Lesson: He bunks off.

More cataloging.

Elsewhere on the testing site, there are reputedly eight kinds of intelligence. And I'm:

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...



"This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introverts and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations. They often have an affinity for thought-based pursuits such as philosophy. They learn best when allowed to concentrate on the subject by themselves. There is often a high level of perfectionism associated with this intelligence.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include philosophers, psychologists, theologians, writers and scientists." (Wikipedia)

One of these is used by psychologists and supposedly by modern teachers. The other's a silly bit of fun. You decide which tells you more about me.

Johnny Rotten is appearing in an advert. The product is butter. The advert is nationalistic.

Let me put this another way. The man whose career is built on his absolute refusal to sell out, is a sellout. The rebel who hated family values, is letting himself be used in a family friendly campaign. The boy who got into the Sex Pistols because he was wearing an "I Hate Pink Floyd" t-shirt, has fallen into self-mockery.

The face of danger is now safe. The pottymouth you couldn't dismiss is now trivial. The laughing harlequin is a laughingstock. The sneering spitting rebel has spat on his own rebellion.

The enfant terrible who got Bill Grundy sacked by saying "Fuck" on live TV...will probably soon be hosting a live daytime chatshow.

Most of the punks were knobs, truth be told, however much we cheered their jabs against complacency. This one turns out to be a knob of butter.


  1. "A knob of butter" - I like it! Actually, I often thought that the whole punk movement and ethos was into self-mocking, just as much as it was about nihilism (or perhaps because of it). Did it EVER take itself seriously? No! Because it was all about knocking down the walls of those 'musos' who did take themselves seriously.

    So Mr Lydon is doing nowt more than being faithful to the cause - but remains a rebel without one, I feel.

    I'm honoured.
