Pic of the Day: July 31, 2014 (Special ‘Homophonia’ Edition)

20140731 - 01

This is a duck who was hanging around the pond outside of Brent Brown Ballpark during the game between the Orem Owlz and the Ogden Raptors in Orem, Utah on June 21, 2014.

At the risk of disparaging the intelligence of said duck, I use the photo here because Orem is just up the road from Provo, where….

[W]hen the social-media specialist for a private Provo-based English language learning center wrote a blog explaining homophones, he was let go for creating the perception that the school promoted a gay agenda.

Tim Torkildson says after he wrote the blog on the website of his employer, Nomen Global Language Center, his boss and Nomen owner Clarke Woodger, called him into his office and told him he was fired.

As Torkildson tells it, Woodger said he could not trust him and that the blog about homophones was the last straw.

Now our school is going to be associated with homosexuality,” Woodger complained, according to Torkildson, who posted the exchange on his Facebook page.

We now have proof: America is brain-dead.
