In case my anthropophagy post made you think I'm weird

In case you think it's only my mind that makes strange associations here's Ethan Barron, a newspaper reporter, on his reaction to a crowd of Canadians who apparently became quite aroused while watching Tuesday's inauguration ceremony.

Barron wrote, "I haven't seen a group of people wearing their fervour so completely, and so uniformly, since a guy I used to work with brought me to visit his weird sex cult in California."

". . . wearing their fervour so completely, and so uniformly. . ." It's probably even colder up there in Canada than it is down here. Barron has me wondering if those Canucks were wearing anything else.

He also has me wondering whether I've been too hide-bound and unimaginative in my mockery of the Obamatons. It never crossed my mind to imagine them as a "sex cult". And, had that notion crossed my mind, even I am too politically correct to have gone there in print. I'll go no further with this train of thought than to wonder whether Ethan Barron's Freudian slip is showing. He may have read a little too deeply into a Kyle Onstott novel in his youth.

You should read Barron's whole unbelievable story. Those folks up north of the border are passing strange.

Hat tip to Jonah Goldberg of National Review, who always comes up with the best strange stuff.

You're not weird. You just like to march to the beat of a different drummer. :)
