James Joyce Channels His Inner Toby Keith
I recently found out about an amazingly witty Tumblr in which Hitler quotes are imposed over Taylor Swift photos and attributed to Tay Tay. The effect is subtle.
Many of the photos actually go viral because people have no idea that Hitler said these things. Out of context, the quotes seem kind of normal, even something a teenager or young adult might say. For example, “I have sworn to only live FREE.” Totally Taylor Swift, right? Wrong. It’s Hitler.
So, as is often the case with my posts, I decided to rip off the idea and see what it might look like if James Joyce quoted Toby Keith. If you don’t know, Keith is a country music star here in America, famous for over-the-top redneckness and unapologetic jingoism in his songs. Toby Keith is like if Donald Trump was a country music star.
So, totally, James Joyce right?
This might be the worst thing ever. But, oh well, here goes.
Let’s see what such an experiment might look like:
DISCLAIMER: JAMES JOYCE NEVER SAID ANY OF THE ABOVE. THIS IS A JOKE–PERHAPS A BAD ONE–BUT A JOKE, NONETHELESS.
The lesson here–never trust an inspirational quote on Instagram or Facebook. Somebody could just be screwing with you. Or maybe James Joyce just has a violent, pro-American streak.
