“I’m offended by bills, can we cancel them!? Isn’t that how it works now?”

A jocular statement on cancel culture was posted on Facebook by Chewy Smalls on March 2, 2021:

“I’m offended by bills, can we cancel them!?
Isn’t that how it works now?”



Wikipedia: Cancel culture
Cancel culture (or call-out culture) is a modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles – whether it be online, on social media, or in person. Those who are subject to this ostracism are said to be “cancelled”. Merriam-Webster notes that to “cancel”, as used in this context, means “to stop giving support to that person” while Dictionary.com, in its pop-culture dictionary, defines cancel culture as “withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive.” The expression “cancel culture” has mostly negative connotations and is commonly used in debates on free speech and censorship.

I’m offended by bills because they all come in white envelopes.
