Reading Tests For The PornHub Generation …

I recently received a t-shirt.

I don’t know who it is from.

I don’t know if I will ever wear it.

But for what it lacks in fashion, it makes up for it in intriguing.

Have a look …

How many of you read it incorrectly.

Then when it told you that, how many of you realized you had read the acknowledgement of your mistake incorrectly as well?

While there are many scientific reasons for this, another reason is our seemingly endless obsession for speed.

Speed trumps everything these days.

We’ve been led to believe speed lets us do more, achieve more, become more,.

And while I don’t doubt there are situations where that is true, it is also leading to more mistakes, more misunderstanding and less appreciation of what we have and should enjoy.

I accept I am literally the last person who should say this – just like I accept this is rather a deep conversation for a t-shirt that has purposeful spelling and grammar mistakes – but the genius of it is that it tells us we have made a mistake by making us make another mistake which forces us to accept we are addicted to the rush rather than just idiots who make the odd slip up.

Only you would use porn for education.

Thank god Otis isn’t being homeschooled.

Comment by Bazza

Funny, at one point that was under consideration – but the good news (for Otis) is that if that had happened, it would have been under Jill’s tutoring rather than mine.

Comment by Rob

For the record, I read it correctly because there is no person on the planet who would assume the alternative reading could be associated with you. Though I know you’d wear both of them as T-shirts.

Comment by DH

Wow. I thought comments on penis size were from another era. And you say this blog isn’t topical, hahaha.

Believe it or not, I stopped wearing t-shirts like that in the late 80’s, which is where your comment comes straight out from.

Comment by Rob

Now you know how I feel.

Comment by DH

Are you taking bets on who sent you that shirt?

Comment by Pete

Let me take myself out of the running because I wouldn’t spend anything on Rob, even if it was to humiliate him.

Comment by Bazza

Don’t worry Baz, I got enough out of you to last a lifetime. Hahaha.

Comment by Rob

Oh tell me Pete … I can’t wait to see how many people you insult with your odds, hahaha.

Comment by Rob

Comment by andy@cynic

Send me or send Rob?

Comment by Pete

Like going back to a disappointing dumpling shop and expecting a different outcome?

Comment by John

To be fair (to me) I went there when it had just opened so I thought there may be a change of experience as they got their shit together. And it did. Just not enough.

Comment by Rob

Oh now I get it. It’s got the wrong verb in the first line.

Comment by john

Comment by Rob

I was thinking it should say am rather than got.

Comment by john
