Generalizations of Jack

Posted on July 7, 2010 at 6:08 PM

 

 

I had never met a blue person until yesterday. Yesterday a blue person punched me in the face. Now I know that all blue people are mean and violent and do not like me.

 

I had never met a group of Allitigersorus’ until yesterday. Yesterday a group of Allitigersorus’ gave me money for food when they saw I was hungry. Now I know that all Allitigersorus’ are kind and giving, and like me very much.

 

I had never been to the country of Nowhere until yesterday. Yesterday the country of Nowhere ignored me completely. Now I know that everyone in the country of Nowhere is rude and ignorant and do not think much of me at all.

 

A blue person had never met Jack until yesterday. Yesterday a blue person said hello with their customary greeting and Jack ran away angry. Now the blue people know that Jack isn’t very friendly.

 

A group of Allitigersorus’ had never met Jack until yesterday. Yesterday a group of Allitigersorus’ paid Jack enough money to get rid of him, because they did not like needy people. Now the group of Allitigersorus’ have a law that keeps people like Jack away from them for good.

 

No one in Nowhere had ever met Jack. No one from Nowhere still has ever met Jack, because when he thought he was in Nowhere, he was indeed somewhere else.

I had to read through this a couple of times. It's all in the eye of the beholder.
