Hell yeah we’re bitter

Regular readers to this blog may have noticed the prevalence of depressing posts focused on job loss, job searching, depressed economy and depressed Five Husbands. Getting me to laugh was damn near impossible. Until today. Linking from social network contact to contact I discovered the root of my unhappiness, dare I say bitterness, broken down in a pie chart that brought tears (of laughter) to my eyes courtesy of 23/6.

Tip of the hat to to MarilynM for linking to Lee Stranahan‘s Obama in 30 Ad (excellent) and the happy coincidence that brought me to Bitter Pennsylvanians really bringing us all down.

Why Bitter Pa?

    Son No. 1 reviewed the pie chart and noted a glaring omission, the fact that Pennsylvanians have to go to a beer distributor for beer. As he points out, on a hot summer day with lust bfor brew on your lips you want to be able to zip to a local market for a cold one. Being forced to drive the extra mileage to a distributor makes you bitter.

    Excellent! Makes me feel better to know that I’m not the only depressed, bitter, and unemployed person out there. All I ask now is for the weather to stay decent.

    i haven’t lived in PA since 1990, but i’m stilll bitter over the fact that not only do you have to go to the beer distributor for beer, you pay more for that privilege. And if your taste was for wine or the hard stuff, your only choice is the state-owned liquor store, also with the same jacked-up prices.

    And remember “The Deer Hunter”? Set in PA, that movie DEFINES bitter.
