Just As I Thought

The Style Invitational: Week CXLV

If you don’t already, take a moment to read the Washington Post’s Style Invitational, a contest of wit, intelligence, and bad taste. The results of Week CXLV are published today – that contest asked readers to come up with statements that would summarize the mind-set of a typical college freshman in 2020. Some of my favorites:

  • The U.S. Congress has always met in an undisclosed location. (Bob Dalton, Arlington)
  • There has always been a Starbucks in the Sistine Chapel. (Lori Washington, Washington)
  • Thinking naughty thoughts has always been a felony. (Jonathan M. Kaye, Washington)
  • Jerry Falwell has always been a gay activist. (Tony Noerpel, Lovettsville)
