(As noted in the last post, this is an era when such things must be shared, mustn't they?)
Then I saw Monday night's Daily Show where Jon Stewart made a joke about that same misinterpretation of Roman numerals as "triple X" and I thought, Well, it's now officially too late for me to go with what I'd thought. Even though mine conceded its lack of originality, I was merely assuming that at the time (I hadn't seen it but the internet's a big place; someone must have). But once a joke's been on DS, the window of opportunity for making it has closed (in my mind), even if that joke was about how it must have been made.
All there is left at that point is to lament one's lack of being in step with the times (skeptical that most would pick up on the irony without pointing it out parenthetically).
After lamenting failing to make the "XXX" joke before Jon Stewart above I now have something to salvage it:
"XXX Summer Olympics"? Aren't those what happen after the athletes are done competing and the Olympic Village turns into a massive orgy?
Surely NBC would charge extra for that.
Should have quit while I was behind; I know.
