An Overdue Revelation


This week’s post will be short and sweet. Well, definitely short.

Several years ago, when I came up with the name for this blog, I was so proud of myself for coming up with the British euphemism “bum”. For an Anglophile like me, it was the perfect touch.

This past week, it suddenly dawned on me that “bum” has an entirely different connotation in America, albeit one that is still completely applicable.

I’m somewhat ashamed that I never realized the connection before. Because, truthfully, that is what this blog is about: not just the ass cracks and belt buckles I see, but the assholes, too.

To be fair, many of them don’t realize they’re assholes. They are simply too ignorant of their douchiness to be aware of their behavior.

Ignorance may be bliss, but it doesn’t equal innocence. And, as such, I have determined it is my responsibility – along with like-minded peers – to educate the bums out there. I’ll do it for as long as I can, one doofus at a time.
