In light of everything that’s been circling around the blogosphere lately, I thought that perhaps it was time to get to the bottom of it. And I think that I’ve got a fool-proof method for solving the problems that we’ve been seeing! Honest!
You see, being a child of the 80’s (yes, I had mall hair – MOCK ME IF YOU DARE!) we had a definitive guide for how to behave. Someone to help us understand that you can’t always judge a book by its cover and the teach us to differentiate good behavior from bad. (See! The 80’s had more than just kick ass fashion, Aqua Net and Madonna!).
Who was this guide, this muse, this purveyor of such a wealth of information? I’ll tell you my friends, it is none other than the fabulous John Hughes. (Snigger all you want! The man was a genius!).
WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON’T KNOW WHO JOHN HUGHES IS?!?!?!
Well…that explains a lot! If you are scratching your head confused, head to your nearest blockbuster and rent anything of his pre-1990 (preferably with Molly Ringwald)! Be educated by the master of how to treat people!
The Fool Proof Method! The next time you have the urge to be a bit controversial in any medium, be it your blog or twitter – before you act, ask yourself “What would John Hughes Do?”.
And then remember how awful you felt for Molly Ringwald as she stitched up that pink dress only to have to go to prom alone. Of course you should then relish the awesomeness that is Ducky – and learn the lessons that Andrew McCarthy learned the hard way. But hopefully by now you get my drift!
In all honesty, you could do a lot worse than follow some semi-dated, yet still relevant, advice from the 80’s!
Oh – and stay off my Aqua Net!
