Friends, I feel betrayed. Only today I discovered this rightly-infamous bit o’ pop culture:
That show aired 20 years ago, and I’d still be in the dark if it weren’t for Ryan North and his awe-inspiring “Link’s Sarcasm” graph.
I laughed until my face hurt, but sobered up when struck by the darker implications of this cartoon. Check my math:
29 uses of “Excuuuuuuuse me!” ÷ 13 episodes = Nooooooooo!
I thought I knew Link— we grew up together! He seemed so gallant, so noble, and now I find out about his snarky, dimwitted past. Why didn’t he ever tell me? To think that just this morning I was daydreaming about our life together, ignorant of his true character.
I need a drink.
