The Recent Tragedy

I feel weird talking about the recent tragedy, in light of the fact that there are so many other people who are closer to it than I am. Who am I to comment on a horrible event that has touched so many lives around the globe? Can I approach the subject with the gravitas it deserves?

When I first heard that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had split, I thought it was some kind of joke. I mean, sure, Jennifer was spotted without her wedding ring a while back, but that could happen to anyone. Maybe she took it off to go swimming, or garden. And I couldn't believe that Brad would cheat on Jennifer with Angelina Jolie, or have phone sex with her! She just adopted a Cambodian boy.

Then Brad and Jennifer released a joint statement. They truly are separating. I am distraught. For me, this comes out of nowhere. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY? Why did this happen?

I'm sorry. This is an emotional time for me. If Brad and Jennifer can't make it work, well, no couple can.

I am going to make a prediction: The break-up of Brad and Jennifer's marriage will be the death of irony.

You heard it here first.

Get with the times, Swish, that is totally an old episode. That sounds like the storylines from way back before the sixth season, before Blair got churchy, or at latest midway through the seventh when Brad helped Natalie and Jo open that store called "Over Our Heads" because it was over their heads. Get a TV Guide subscription, slut.

but wouldn't the death of irony be ironic, thus defying it's own death?

Shit, that's deep.

Obviously, Brad and Jennifer called it quits because man was made to suffer nothing good can stay. Or maybe because Brad just had the living room redecorated and Jennifer no longer matches the drapes. I've seen stronger marriages end over less.
