Blogging whiteness into a book

Well, hats off to Christian Lander, who somehow turned a blog about Stuff White People Like into a book. No qualms about blogging and book-writing for him.

The other thing that must be said, of course, is that he gets it uncomfortably right. I’m whiter than I thought, as found I out here, here, here and here, among other places. Here, too, but then he got the definition slightly wrong. Here is mine.

  1. Regarding irony, the word’s etymology must come from “iron”.

    Iron is hard, unyielding; yet irony is subtle, nuanced, teasing.

    So “irony”, being the almost total opposite of it’s supposed root, “iron”, is intrinsically ironical, no?
