The 47th percent has never been as hot as it is right now, for reasons I will not be getting into here. You see, I’ve always been enamored of 47% and wish to share with the uninitiated some of the highlights of this vastly underrated percentage before it became a star:
47% of the American People can believe it’s not butter.
47% of all Canadians believe that -10% C is just too darn cold
47% of all English Literature graduates have or will work at McDonalds.
47% of Americans under the age of 18 believe the eye-patch was invented by Steve Jobs.
47% of American grandparents secretly loathe their grandchildren.
47% of my readers think the following picture is strangely alluring:
47% of people who click on this post will not read to the end.
47% of my 47% posts are self-referential.
47% of all Mitt Romney impersonators are women.
47% of people who just read the above are really, really upset.
If you remove about 47% of the word “absentminded” it would be “absent”
I have about 47% of the enthusiasm I had when I started this post by the time I ended it.
Thank you. You’ve been a great audience.
