Maybe it's your host's relatively advanced years, but over here at Speakeasy, we're done wondering why we can't all like the same stuff. If everybody loved Jeebus, sure, we'd be a lot more peaceful (and frustrated, which is another conversation). But the number of people who love Kanye West is a lot smaller, and look what it's done to that guy. Vive le difference.
Just as the VMAs are an inappropriate forum for popular taste, Speakeasy is mighty ill-suited to building consensus. But what the hell, let's give it a go. For September 17, we want to know What Offends You. Whether it's the administration's tolerance of Syrian atrocities or The View's tolerance of Jenny McCarthy, let's fling some literary poop on it. After all this time together, this may be our greatest challenge yet: Offending each other. Third Tuesday of the month as usual, 9 pm sharpish at Will's Pub.
