The Parable of the Stupid

"Titan, the world was your oyster today" beamed Frank 'Slats' Slattery at the conclusion of play at Kinsley this morning. TennisTitan/'Slats' teamed for a four set sweep. Gero 'young phenom'/Carl the 'anonymous gas man' fell meekly (6-1), followed by dual drubbings to the tandem of Rich 'El Prezidente' Prezioso/'Rockin' Rick Ricci (6-2, 6-2). George 'Chemist' Hauss/'RRR' succumbed (6-3) sending the 'boastful bullshitter' home with that annoying smug grin on his face. 'Slats' asked the 'pompous prevaricator' at picture time, "Titan do you feel redeemed, coming after that abominable performance you displayed last Wednesday?" "Don't be silly, Frankie, I don't feel redeemed because my game was not resurrected from the dead. It was only in limbo." "But this was the third day since you suffered your cross of  having had 'El Prezidente' as your partner on Wednesday;" commented the 'coddling counselor.' "Slats' answered the 'bombastic blogger,' Prezie is heading out to the Hamptons this week for the summer. I wanted him to taste the bitter herb of multiple losses to me before he departs. He'll have a hell of a ride." "And 'Rockin' Rick, with his three losses to you?" queried 'Slats.' "Temporal punishment for sure" replied Titan.
