Last week I posted this most spectacular story from Gawker, which I just adore, on Facebook (follow me for even more fun). When I noticed not that many people saw it, I said to myself, “This really needs to get some more attention.” So I thought we’d take a more in depth look at the article here.
When I posted it, I’ll admit I didn’t even read past the first line of the article. I didn’t need to. That first line was so unbelievably brilliant it told me everything. “A Florida woman wearing nothing but a thong rampaged through a St. Petersburg McDonald’s…”
The headline was pretty good, as well. “Topless Florida Woman Wrecks McDonald’s, Pauses to Guzzle Ice Cream.”
I particularly like the use of the word, “guzzle.” You don’t hear that word nearly enough. And in this case, juxtaposed with “topless” it really works. It creates a slightly discordant yet vivid image.
But what I really caught my attention (aside from the topless) in the article was the word “rampage.” I think we have to ask ourselves, can a topless woman really rampage? And how much rampaging can a topless woman do?
I’d like you all to ponder that, and get back to me in comments.
Must say according to these Daily Mail photos, it does look like she did a fair amount of rampaging. Just when I thought it wasn’t possible.
