In keeping with my post yesterday, and hopefully more erudite, I bring you news of The Carnival of the Elitist Bastards.

The Carnival of the Elitist Bastards began with a battle cry:

"It's time we stop letting our culture celebrate willful ignorance and start promoting genius instead.

"We'll celebrate our cerebrums, jerk the sledgehammer out of the hands wielding it against us, and kick anti-elitists to the curb. We'll delve into the delightful varieties of elitist and elite pleasures. We'll wax philosophical and hold up the elite of our societies for praise."

Adlai Stevenson, an Elitist Bastard if there ever was one, once said in response to a man who called him an egghead, "Eggheads unite! You have nothing to lose but your yolks!"

What we'll end up with if we don't unite is bland scrambled eggs. And no, there won't be Tabasco Sauce. Not even a drop.

Let's put intellect back in the public discourse, then, shall we?

Aarggh matey! I sail in the morn to meet mine destiny upon the deck of the HMS Elitist Bastard. I shall keep the wind at my back and the sails taut until I see her white sails beckoning me on the Horizon. Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of (premium brazilian) Rum!
