This may be a bit weird but do you do this? We live in a world where it’s very easy. Just Google ‘em.
Here are the test results for a couple of mine – both of them deriving from my rage at Brexit, so apologies in advance for the anger.
It was the doddering old and the uneducated that voted us out of Europe (really – demographics of the vote are well established). That is to say, it was the poor. All of my life I have voted Labour* - that might see me labelled as a socialist (the word doesn’t have the same connotations/stigma in the UK as in the US - for the avoidance of doubt, very roughly maps to Democrat). But now I have taken to calling myself a Two Nation Socialist.** Basically still a socialist, but screw the poor – they got us into this mess, and now they can suffer for it.
So how original a concept is Two Nation Socialist? Googled in quotes gets you* two* hits (!) one of which looks very suspect (the Des Moines Register - really??). So: a pretty original thought.
Still fuming: I look back to Britain in the old days (pre-EU), a grim grey place of mass poverty, cultural isolation and ignorance, and awful food. You just know we’re heading back there. Decades of exposure to Europe basically worked miracles, but miracles can be undone. Consider: for all those years of chanting the mantra Are We Not Men?, you can still forget how to drink from a cup, and go back to walking on all fours.
You got it – an allegory for Brexit: welcome to the Island of Doctor Moreau, where the beasts are reverting.
But an original thought? Test Results: Googling <”Doctor Moreau” Brexit> gets you 9290 hits.* Not original*. (Admittedly, a lot of these hits look like false positives; but there were also additional combinations I could have googled – with “Dr Moreau” for a start.)
So I’d like to know your original thoughts; and I invite you to test them for originality and submit the results of testing.
Or is it just me?
