According to Godwin’s Law, as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1. We’re now over 50 posts into the 366 times/artists/songs project and so far, nobody has compared anything to Hitler in this space. Now I suppose that’s a good thing; my posts aren’t too inflammatory, my readers are reasonable and thoughtful folks, and so on. Nevertheless, I feel like I haven’t quite made it yet… like I’m not really on the Internet until Godwin’s Law plays out right here on the site.
Instead of waiting for someone else to be so offended by my musical tastes to suggest that I’m worse than Hitler or whatever, I’m going to take the initiative and make the comparison myself: Even Hitler had a girlfriend! He was the worst guy in the world! Okay, perhaps it was the Mr. T Experience that said that and I just invited ’em to the party here because I liked the tune. After all, if “Solitary Man” wasn’t the best possible song for me to post on Valentine’s Day, this might have been. So there you have it, the Mr. T Experience suggesting I’m worse than Hitler. I’m Internet-legit now!
