‘All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.’

Recognize that quote? You should, it is a line from one of the most famous stories of the 20th century. It is a beautiful line from an inspiring book, and pretty much sums up the message of the greatest critique of communism ever put to paper. So what happens when some suit from ESPN nabs it for his own purposes? You get this shitwreck:

Every major league ballplayer is driven to a certain degree. But to paraphrase a line from George Orwell’s “Animal Farm,” some players are more driven than others.

What was he thinking? Does he even grasp the point of Orwell’s writing the book? Hell, does he even realize how bad he is messing up that very line in and of itself? I realize the stress sportswriters are under for coming up with a ‘zinger’ to keep everyone hooked, but seriously, this is absolutely pathetic.

Being Stephen King Sunday, Nov 25 2007 

I found this kind of funny:

“I’m in the supermarket one day with my cart, and there’s this woman, about 95,” King recalled at the Regency the other day. “She says, ‘I know who you are. You write those stories, those awful horror stories . . . I don’t like that. I like uplifting movies like that ‘Shawshank Redemption.’ So I said, ‘I wrote that.’ And she said, ‘No, you didn’t.’ And that was it. Talk about surreal. I went to myself, for a minute, ‘It’s not very much like my other stuff. Maybe I didn’t write it!’ “

That I laughed at this?

Q: Why is it so groovy to be a test tube baby?
A: Because you get a womb with a view.

Yikes.
