The Socio-Economic Implications of Monocles
I’ve never actually seen someone in real life wearing a monocle, and yet I immediately associate it with wealth and a sense of a classiness so classy that most everyday actions could offend the wearer’s delicate sensibilities. Monocles were, in fact, most frequently worn by the wealthy, who could afford custom-fitted monocles that were less likely to fall off one’s face. Today they are probably most frequently worn by some douchebag in a vest riding a penny-farthing bike through Brooklyn.
When I was a kid I remember being told that cartoons were horrible, brain-rotting bits of entertainment, but there are some things that I would probably never know if I hadn’t been sitting on the floor watching Looney Tunes all morning:
1. “Timber!” If you hear someone yell “timber!” your first instinct is to look up for something that’s tall and probably falling on you. At least it is for me, and I have cartoons to thank for keeping me safe when I’m wandering around forests (which I do ALL THE TIME). I’ve probably heard the word “timber” used to mean “something is falling” far more often than I’ve heard it used as just another word for “lumber.” Continue learning through cartoons.
