Oh literate millennial, where art thou?

Whatever you think about Kim Kardashian (and Kanye West) naming their infant boy Psalm West, something else is truly troubling:

the number of people who do not know how to pronounce Psalm.

Un-fucking-believable.

You don’t hafta be religious, Christian or some Biblical scholar to know the word psalm.

You just hafta to be SEMI-literate!!

Emphasis for a reason. Not even literate! Merely semi!

Because psalm is a simple word that’s found in BASIC vocabulary.

How fucking STUPID has our American culture become that psalm is, what, now a word of the highest echelon of education?!

ARRRRGHHHHHHH!!!!!!

StupidStupidStupid millennials.

Have said it a thousand times and will at least another few thousand before my time’s up:

Thank god we don’t live forever. Would hate to be here when these millennials become leaders / “leaders” and, nightmare of nightmares, reproduce and “raise” their own kids.

Stupid on Steroids.

Or should that read: Pstupid on Psteoroids.

Because, you grand ol’ illiterate nitwits, the “p” is silent in psalm.

Which you would know if you took your brain outta social media (with its literacy-defying ridiculous shorthand) and put into a book … a dictionary … a classroom!

To close on an upbeat note, a random Bible verse off the Internet:

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”

Psalm 56:3

Haha, perfect! I do fear profoundly for humankind for this generation of Illiterates.

As for where I put my trust … in my god, good ol’ Merriam-Webster!
