Bindermania has taken over the web.
By now, unless if you have been hiding under a rock (or a very large binder), you have all heard and seen the viral memes, tweets, and postings regarding Binders Full of Women Mitt Romney has made popular from the debate.
Frankly, when I heard it, I thought it was awkward, but I knew what he meant.
Mitt, like me, is part of the pre-internet generation and time period he was talking about was from 2003. That’s before Twitter; before Facebook; before the iPad; heck, even before most highly commercialized smartphones.
In other words, a long time ago.
They used binders back then.
All of this is because of an unfortunate mix of words and terms that have changed over the years.
Of course when I first heard about the viral memes and such the first two I thought of were . . .
Then I got into thinking about what would have happened if some other famous books and movies had not had the good fortune of having the right words chosen.
So here is a quick list that I came up with. Knowing the internet, I’m sure some are not original but hey, it is my blog and my imagination and you can always comment some other classics for everyone to read, watch and listen to if you feel so inclined.
Until next time:
Be Good, Do Well, Have Fun.
