The Avitable Pledge

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on September 19, 2011

One of the digital depths that PG sinks to is a blog called Avitable. (The spell check suggestions are Inevitable, Visitable, Veritable, Editable) The perp is a Florida resident named Adam Heath Avitable. AHA is, the last time we checked, a stand up comedian. This is a humor blog. When PG last checked up on Avitable, he was promoting something called “The Avitable Pledge”. It is repeated below. PG looked at it, and agreed with most of it. There was something about dealing with bullies, which can get you mixed up in useless battles. You should never wrestle with a hog…you will get dirty, and the pig enjoys it. There is one more reason for PG to not sign TAP. Almost no one reads Chamblee54. Non spam comments are few and far between. While being thoughtful and honest are good traits, it does little good when no one is watching. If a tree falls in an empty forest, does the chain saw make a noise? This blog is always looking for text to put between the pictures. As a compromise, Chamblee54 is going to post TAP, in a rainbow font, and post pictures from The Library of Congress . It is worth what it costs you. If you feel the need to sign TAP, then, by all means go to Avitable and sign it. You will no doubt be a better person. The Avitable Pledge I am proud to have higher brain functions. I will apply critical thinking and react with clear thought when I am faced with unknown, stressful or difficult situations. I pledge to view ignorance and anonymity as weaknesses. Those who wield those traits as weapons are to be pitied but they have earned whatever punishment occurs. They do not deserve our sympathy or respect. I believe that there is no situation that cannot be approached with a sense of humor. That said, each person has at least one thing that they will never find funny or appreciate, and that’s okay. I stand up against bullying and harassment in all its forms. I will not shy away from calling out bullies and harassers in public forums, and I will not tacitly support their actions by remaining silent. I refuse to apply any standards to others that I will not apply to myself. Only by striving to be the best can I expect that from any other person. I want to see your point of view. Putting myself in your shoes can be difficult, but I will try my hardest to realize that my perspective is rarely objective. I affirm that I will be honest with you and trust you at your word. If at all possible I will avoid lying and omitting truths. There is never a good reason to lie and there are hundreds of reasons not to. If you lie to me and betray that trust, that’s not my fault. I’m an elitist condescending intellectual perverted asshole, but I manage to follow this pledge to the best of my ability. What about you? Will you take the Avitable pledge? P.S. This post originally started as a parody of the Mom Pledge, but then as I started writing it, I realized I wanted to write a sincere post. For those of you who are getting sick of my serious posts, here is a joke for you: You’ve got to hand it to midgets. No, literally. They usually can’t reach.
