By The Right Scoop


Every Friday on the 4th hour on Insider Extreme, Pat and Stu do moron trivia. Beck was listening in the other day and heard one caller he wanted to highlight on the normal radio show. The caller was asked to define vitriolic rhetoric and his unbelievable answer was that it meant ‘addicted to victories’.

Enjoy!

    This isn’t funny, I went to college missed the classes and I could understand where that kid is coming from. A lot of kids go to college to party, not to be mocked but a situation to be addressed.

    This is not funny but sad, and why we are behind in the world, we have slept so long that we don’t know what is going on in the world, If every person could just remember everything you learned til the end of 5th grade, you would be smarter than the average American.

    I’m IN college, I’ve missed classes from time to time…and I still know the answer to both questions. This just boils down to some people being rather lacking in grey matter.

    Yes we can! Yes we can! Yes we can!

    OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA,

    Yes we can! Yes we can! Yes we can!

    OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA,

    Ooopps! I think American Idol is coming on.

    It would be great if GB had either High school teachers/counselors and counselors from mid-level universities to defend their curriculum with regard to these words – especially socialism as that is being thrown about more and more.

    Now that there’s funny, I don’t care who you are.

    Beam him up Scotty! He can’t fit in with the intelligent life down here!
    Addicted to Victory sounds like a Robert Palmer song. Ahem…”The lights are on, but you’re not home, your mind is not your own…”

    This is what educational neglect looks and sounds like folks. It’s rampant. I guess we need more unions, more tenure, more liberalism and more institutionalized neglect. Has anyone ever heard of a college grad suing because he was still a dolt? If that were possible some enterprising attorney would have a great class action suit huh? His client could be everyone not educated since nineteen hundred and whatever. His opponent,_________?

    I think many would miss this question. Especially the younger generation, reared more by YouTube than those objects of long-form reading known as “books” – remember those? These kids are building their reading and grammar skills through the practice of texting, wherein they compose eloquent messages like, “R U there?” and “OMG OMG OMG!!!”. Look up the article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” and you may begin to worry about what’s happening to your own brain. Probably high-time many of us carved out a daily hour for good books. But it might mean (heaven forbid) closing the lid on our notebook and turning off our devices.

      I can’t stand it when people use “u” instead of you, especially when adults do it.

      Yes, Google has made us stupid, most electronics have. People can’t read maps anymore, balance check books, write letters, much less conduct a face to face conversation w/out having to stop mid-sentence to attend to a device.

  • Stevendufresne

    Uh is Beck insinuating that this guy is representative of all college students? What college did this kid go to, what is his major, etc? The country couldn’t go a day without college grads, that’s a fact.

      Sir. I do not know you and do not want to offend you, but…

      Aaaaaaahahahahahahahahahaha!

      That is so funny…and delusional.

    It makes perfect sense… I am a VICTORYAHOLIC!

  • PaleoSapiens

    Seems some attention to detail has been missed. No one bothered to correct the student’s mis-pronunciation of vitriolic as “victoryolic.” Had Stu or Pat said, “…No, no, it’s not ‘victoryolic’ it’s VIT-ri-olic,” a different answer would have occurred.

    The onus is mostly on the caller though. More than likely this guy has never heard or paid attention to definitions of either vitriolic or rhetoric. A young male is more apt to be focused on matters of the female persuasion, remember?
