You’re a Star

I think that if you want to secretly insult somebody, you should call them a star. People tend to only think of stars in the sense of being refulgent or luminary. I think that the term star could just as accurately be used to imply that you think that the person is a giant ball of gas or hot air. The person being insulted will never guess.

  1. In this case, the “hot air” definition of star applies very well to my old high school ( http://www.acrss.org ).

    The name given to any team was the “Carney Stars”.

    I guess a large part of the irony for me is the fact that most of the time, the teachers would say we ( the student body ) had a large say in how our school is run ( ie, the student council ), despite what would actually happen ( nobody runs for, or is bared from running for student council, so a group of brown nosers are chosen by teachers to be the student council ).

    ps, I don’t know if html formatting is allowed in the comments or not, so if all of the paragraph tags show up, or this comment looks horrible, many appologies.
