Wet from the Standpoint of Water Madlib

Today we learned one of the most impotent lessons in speaking bigly, which is really the secret of everything: fill as much time as you can with as little continence as possible from the standpoint of vacuity. This previously unreviled secret of solipsistic, self-referential, redundant, repetitive and slambastic speech is to say a lot without saying anything. It’s how SEO works. Why wouldn’t it work for the Presidency?

This hurricane was one off the wettest from the standpoint of water – President Trump

What he actually said was “This hurricane was tough, one of one of the wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water,” but that’s a lot of words that won’t fit on a meme. He could have said, “How much wetness could the wettest water wet if wet water could wetter water wet?” but who can remember all that? Better to keep it simple. Think less, talk more!

Try it Yourself!

Don’t be intimated! Anyone can do it. Here’s your Madlib tampon:

Is that even Alanis? Of course it might be! Punch her in the pussy! Alternative facts enporridged! Thing bigly, talk biglier!

And don’t let polemical correctness get in the way, or the Kurds! Kurds away!

You can use it in your next class report!

That orgasm was one of the fakest from the standpoint of why are we still together?

You can even use it in flatulent Supreme Court confirmation smearings!

Oh, what a downer that boy is! Sad. Never end on the melon trolley!

Just remember to keep it simple, talk fast, say a lot, but don’t say anything you can’t misexplain later!

Now, what have you got? Try using “moist”. I dare you!
