Today on Twitter, someone I follow referred to former Vice(*) President Dick Cheney as “Evil Dick.” I recently got a new phone. As such, I spent an inordinate amount of time creating new ringtones for various alerts. These two items collided in my head and produced an image I couldn’t expunge for the rest of the day.
The phone number of this man:
was stored on scores (perhaps even hundreds) of cellphones in the Bush White House. It is all but certain that the owner of at least one of them used, for his “Dick Cheney” ringtone, the opening of:
Body Count’s “Evil Dick.”
In writing this, I hope to expel this imagery from my mind.
