A baroque idiocy

July 13, 2012

I read this sentence yesterday:

“You would need to be on weapons-grade hallucinogens to be able to discern the vaguest connection between athletic competition and the baroque idiocy of the sponsorship circus.”

Obviously, it is saying:

“You would have to be on drugs to think there is any meaningful connection between sport and corporate sponsorship of the Olympics.”

But the deeply unfunny combination of words has so many bells and whistles that it becomes what it mocks. The sentence is, in itself, a baroque idiocy.

This is another reason why I think Marina Hyde is a whistling fart.
