The Rhymebawd makes the mistake of introducing us to Structuralism and Deconstruction theories, early in the morning. Morningtime is when our thought process lacks structure, and thinks of crazy things. By mid-day, we’re usually ramming logic into everybodys head.
Because he said so, we asked ourselves if we look for meaning like he quoted, and I quote too because that, supposedly, is what we should be doing before we tear a theory apart:
Somebody says, “I sat on a chair” and your brain goes – “chair” is not “tree”, “chair” is not “dog”, “chair” is not “daddy”,”chair” is not a million other things, therefore “chair” is “chair”. Phew! And then you say, “So? Big deal”, and send their brain into a flurry.
We agree: We don’t think this theory holds water. Or even air. And if anyone asks you to prove it, you may quote us when we say:
What if you’re talking about sitting on the ‘Stool’. The brain does not go – ‘Stool’ is not ‘dog’. It’s not ‘blueberry cheesecake’, it’s not ‘shit’. Oh wait! It can be ‘shit’. Now what do I do? Shall I keep sitting on the stool, or get up?
So, feeling very intelligent right now, we shall end this post with a long-pointy-nose-up-in-the-air type of statement that says I’m much more intelligent than you lowly, miserable nincompoops in just two words; a statement that a certain Puck used to irritate us with. Here goes:
