People tell me that my sarcasm and cynicism will get me into trouble some day. We'll see.

Irrational is the word

You better shape up,
'cause I need a man
and my heart is set on you.
You better shape up;
you better understand
to my heart I must be true.

If you've lived anytime during the last 29 years, chances are you recognize that stanza from a popular movie song. Yes, those are the lines Sandy sings to Danny in the last scenes of the popular late '70s movie Grease.

This is the scene, you may recall, when Sandy dressed up in that hot, tight black spandex outfit to try to lure Danny, (who had gone from a hoodlum leather jacket to a letterman's sweater during the movie to try to impress her.)

The irony of the slutty chick telling the born again athlete he's gotta change HIS ways aside, I think the oddest thing about that stanza is the fallacious logic in her argument.

I NEED a man, so YOU had better shape up.

Scuuuse me??
