One could argue that I titled this post “Really, Really, REALLY Bad Polygon Pictures and Puns” as a cynical ploy to get people to read it. Can anybody really resist looking at something THAT bad?
Probably not. Look how many truly awful movies have gone on to become huge cult classics. “Plan 9 From Outer Space,” for example. Or “Killer Klowns From Outer Space.” Or “Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
But the featured photo alone should be proof that, in this case, I mean business. It is a tall, skinny quadrangle that has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. But I did have to give my QUADS a workout to get up to that quadrangle and I think I quadrupled my stupidity by even taking a picture of it. (See what you’re in for if you continue reading this?)
For some reason I always thought it was Oscar Wilde who famously said, “the pun is the lowest form of wit.” Just now, I consulted Google and learned it was first written by an English playwright named John Dennis. That was 300 years ago. That made me feel pretty LOW — until I read a little further and learned Dennis added, “it is therefore the foundation of all wit.”
And the picture coming up next should prove to be the foundation of a DIMWIT.
With that, I conclude my search for polygons this month. That’s it. I’ve found every single polygon there is to find in MY Town.
But I’ll probably be back with something else this month . . . if I can think of anything.
