What the bleep is a thought leader?

 Google advertisement in query provoking blog entry shock!

As I type, the bottom advert [on the Animation of the week " Kenya " page] is for Bob Herbold who happens to be one of 150 thought leaders under exclusive representation. Now... I could click the link and find out what a thought leader is... but that's far too easy for me.

I suspect we're heading towards George Orwell's "1984" world and a "thought leader" is a forerunner of the "thought police". Before you know it, Bob's tactile strike team will be breaking your door down because you were recalling that "secret ingredient" in your mom's cookies.

Just watch, first we'll have cameras everywhere. A feeling of unease and stress from war-like propaganda [and proper gooser] will lead to the enforcement of curfews, introductions of mandatory identification cards. Biometrics letting you in and out of countries - technology tracking your every movement, every purchase, every transaction.

To combat Bob's thought police, I'm going to be constantly thinking about the theme tune to "the Banana Splits"

Nah nah nah, na-na-nah nah, nah nah nah, na-na-nah nah.

[that should really mess them up]

I did like that the top advert was for Dr Neil ... although, Dr Neil doesn't sound as menacing as Dr Evil.. maybe I should work on my evil laugh... Mwah ha ha ha ho!

Paranoid? Moi? Let's chalk this up as conspiracy theory #479
[one banana, two banana, three banana four... four bananas make a bunch and so do many more]

  • It won't help - the thought police _still_ know what you're thinking...

  • Hey!?! I loved that show! But now that theme song is stuck in my head!!! Pardon me while I bang my head against the desk to loosen it's grip on my mind. On second thought, I'll wait until I buy a desk with nice rounded edges.

  • If there were no thought followers, would thought leaders cease to exist?

  • I have fond memories of watching the banana splits ... way back when... no idea what happened from episode to episode,but darn that catchy theme tune that just sticks in the mind.

    Interesting idea about thought followers re: thought leaders... no idea... sometimes I wonder if people can follow my train of thoughts... I wonder if that's at all similar?
