Outrage

The only thing that's more bizarre than someone getting outraged about Starbucks "holiday cups" is the fact that a week later everyone is still getting outraged about their outrage. It really isn't worth the attention you're giving it.

So I'm expressing my outrage at the outrage over the outrage.

We find the smallest, most absurd offence
And use it as a launching point for rage.
Yet never do we stop to think that thence
We freely give the fringe the center stage.
