No Worries? Plenty Of Worries!
I don't know where the term "no worries" started. It mighta been due to that horrible 80's treacle/ballad by Bobby McFerrin. Or maybe it goes back to the hippie days. Or maybe it's Walt Fucking Disney's fault. Nonetheless, it's become part and parcel of the English language. It's a phrase that, even I, the eloquent Nazz have used on far too many occasions.
And... it's... complete... bullshit.
I (and I am sure you) have got more worries than ever.
Here's a catalog of mine:
the motherfucking republicans winning the election
trying to stay sober (13 days as of this posting)
The NY Giants/Yankees winning their respective championships
You get the picture.
The next motherfucker that says "no worries" to me is getting a punch right in the motherfucking throat.
Here's a song that makes me both proud and horrified that I live in a country where this shit can get dreamed and and created.
