Am I the only one who thinks the story of the peppy cheerleader is completely assinine, or am I just a bitter cynic who’s had a bad month and can’t spell assinine? I mean, I like the Beach Boys song, “Be True to Your School” as much as anybody, but the sight of a cheerleader doing her freaking cheer in a stretcher just struck me as completely stupid. I mean, when they put you in a stretcher, isn’t it because you aren’t supposed to move around b/c you might aggravate your injuries? Is this garbage what’s passing for inspiration these days? Super peppy cheerleaders who risk serious injury to scream “Plop-plop, fizz-fizz, Ooooh, what a relief it is”?
“I’m still a cheerleader — on a stretcher or not,” Yamaoka told the Today show while wearing a neck brace. So I guess if I get in a bad car crash and am being wheeled off on a stretcher, I should ask the paramedics if they know who the last Whig president was, because “I’m still a quizmaster–on a stretcher or not.” Fine, so I’m just a bitter cynic who’s had a bad month and can’t spell assinine.
