Sunday Ironing BluesJune 10, 2012
Time to iron. Iron. A noun for such a powerful and historically relevant metal. A noun which, when used as a verb, describes a menial task that emphasises our bonds to our capitalist overlords (presuming we want to look sufficiently smart so as to keep our jobs). In the future, the verb “to iron” will mean to brutally defend yourself with a shirt-smartening tool. After the apocalypse, obviously. After the apocalypse I’ll be doing a LOT MORE ironing. Ka-thunk.
