I Hate Inuckshucks

I hate even trying to spell inucshuck.

I hate seeing inukchuks on people's lawns and in public places- at airports and gas stations.

I hate people asking me to build an innuckshuc for them, instead of wanting a wall.

I hate seeing stones wasted in less than clever barely-human-shaped balancing acts when they could much better be used with a lot of other anti-inuckshuck material to create more structural, aesthetcally pleasing, longer lasting monuments.

I hate that people think inucsucks are clever.

And that the bigger they are, the more clever and impressive they are.

I hate that inchshooks have lost all connectivity with the culture they have been ripped off from.

On the other hand, an occasional Inuck-She? Is that so bad?

  1. When I first started reading I thought 'oh John,you're writing in the middle of the night again- you don't usually make spelling mistakes. By the end I was giggling out loud at the different spellings and by then couldn't even spell it correctly myself.
    Love the Inuck-She! I bet if you build one in your front yard and me in mine, in two years the whole country will be full of them for you to hate.
