Blasphemous Ideas

I was on the bus and these two old men boarded at a stop and were embroiled in some sorta argument. One was sorta bummish, and was saying “there is no fear, I love everything” while the other, kept repeating “shut up, motherfucker.” The bummish guy, at one point said “I’m a buddah,” which completely enraged the other, who stood up with fist poised in a threatening manner.

Apparently the concept of an ordinary person being sacred was extreemly offensive to this man. It’s not the words, but the meaning embued in them, the ideas, that people object to.
