A further sociological examination of modern society using the medium of tweets by vacuous public figures

  1. Last night I collated a series of tweets by three of the great thinkers of the modern age, individuals who contribute much to the gaiety of nations and who have made a valuable contribution to modern cultural life. Those tweets can be found here http://storify.com/loveandgarbage/modern-culture-in-microcosm-a-sociological-survey.

    I would have scored yesterday as a win for Sugar, with Morgan fulfilling the role of the giggling Richard Hammond type figure to the Jeremy Clarkson bully, familiar to fans of Stewart Lee’s Top Gear routine.

    Well, our three intellectual behemoths had not had enough yesterday and their willy waving continued today.

  2. The initial shot is one of Trump’s occasional motivational quotes – the sort of thing Jerry Springer used to use in his final thought while moralising on his talk show after discussion about some bloke in dungarees sleeping with his wife’s sister..
