Following up on this post, and on the confusion between Chechens and Czechs, it occurs to me that perhaps it might be best if we seek to correct other potential misunderstandings about the Boston Marathon bombings in one fell swoop. Herein is contained my effort to do so.
- If you are playing checkers or chess, and if in chess, you either check or checkmate your opponent’s king, that is not sufficient to make you a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
- Che Guevara had nothing to do with the bombings. Granted, this might legitimately come as something of a surprise, given the fact that in life, Che was attracted to murder as moths are to a flame. But given that Che has been dead since 1967, it is probably safe to say that his interest in cutting short the lives of innocents has probably tapered off a bit.
- If you drive a Chevy, are from Chevy Chase, Maryland, or are Chevy Chase, that is not enough to connect you to the Boston Marathon bombings.
I hope and trust that this post has been helpful for the exceedingly tiny minority of people it was intended to assist.
Nota Bene: I think after the past week, we could use a laugh and a humor break. I know I can. That’s why I decided to write this post.
