We Have Met The Enemy And He Is Us... Wankers?

A wanker is defined in the Urban Dictionary as

Wanker —
1. a contemptable person; jerk.
2. a male masturbator.

As the world goes to hell (or wherever) in a handbasket, most of us engage in denial that amounts to mental masturbation. For eample, The BFI (Big F-word [of your choice] Idiot) did his mental masturbatory shtik for his mentally masturbating Dittoheads (listeners) and proclaimed that the Sierra Club was responsible for the Gulf Oil Spill! The BFI and his knuckle-dragging Dittoheads are wankers! However, Tom Tomorrow has it right: we are all wankers as we sit and watch Week Six of the global disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. If this is (fair & balanced) condemnation of us all, so be it.
