up from irony

Why not pick up where disputations left off?

Irony, a gluttonous parasite, unbelief at play, the banner of a generation. 60% of television, 80% of contemporary art, and 100% of the merchandise for sale at Urban Outfitters. Fortress against falsehood, but also truth. A declaration of adulthood that ends in permanent adolescence. A Simpsons episode that turns into Family Guy.

For those seeking faith in a culture salted with irony, it's water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.
