Ode on a Dixie Cup

At a previous place of employment it was mandated–somewhere between diversity training and sexual harassment classes (where I learned, among other things, that it’s really not a good idea to yell out “nice booty, baby!” at a female co-worker … who knew?)–that paper coffee-cups would be banned from the lunch-room. This for environmental reasons and, ultimately, the salvation of the entire planet.

After this had been in place a while it was noted that we were probably killing more trees using paper towels to dry off the now employee-provided ceramic cups than before. The response was telling:

“It’s a gesture.”

Gestures are truth, truth are gestures. That is all ye know and all ye need to know about the Left.

(Apologies to John Keats)
