Words we Need

Yes, add this one to the dictionary.

Denaissance :

...the undoing of the Renaissance. Mankind rejects the spirit of intellectual aspiration, abandons the idea that humanity is a work in progress (and so can be improved) and instead takes refuge in complacency, childishness, superstition and the celebration of talentless mediocrity.

Jade Goody, Paris Hilton, Norman Foster, Patricia Hewitt,...you know, I think the man has a point there.

It's a shame that the BBC removed the Olympic Goatse that someone suggested.
Luckily it is preserved here (picture number 5).

Paris Hilton is way cool, tad unfair to bracket her in with Patricia Hewitt.
