Word of the Day

I would have nothing to write about if it weren’t for all of the funny things that other people say.

Like “sheeple.”

Apparently I have missed the usage of this noun in discussions about how human behavior compares to that of sheep. People, like sheep, follow the leader:  sheeple.  Who is the leader? The media; fashion (media); our media influenced peers. We are herded in masses by mass producers.

We are sheeple.

Well I don’t want to be a (insert appropriate singular form of “sheeple”).  That means I don’t want to write my artist’s biography in the third person, and I don’t want to answer questions about what my art means.

Will I sell less art if my answer to “what does this symbolize” is “it means I had some extra wire laying around my garage?”

Do I have to be a (insert appropriate singular form of “sheeple”) to pull off a successful show?
