We're gearing up for our Mayoral Inquisition this Tuesday night at Rontoms and have an important question: What words or phrases should we ban from the conversation?
The point of the Inquisition is to get mayoral candidates Jefferson Smith and Charlie Hales out of campaign-pat-answers-soundbite mode and into having an actual conversation. In that interest, we want to ban some things from being uttered. For example: Portlandia jokes. Portlandia jokes will be banned. Long-winded metahpors, especially ones referencing Where the Red Fern Grows, will be banned. What other things should we nix in the sake of quality conversation?
