Iconoclast

Iconoclast, n. A breaker of idols, the worshipers whereof are imperfectly gratified by the performance, and most strenuously protest that he unbuildeth but doth not reedify, that he pulleth down but pileth not up. For the poor things would have other idols in place of those he thwacketh upon the mazzard and dispelleth. But the iconoclast saith: "Ye shall have none at all, for ye need them not; and if the rebuilder fooleth round hereabout, behold I will depress the head of him and sit thereon till he squawk it."

2005 Update: 1. The servant of a superior false god.
2. Tomorrow's icon.

Wow, I'm first!

For a less synical version of iconoclast...

Today is the 25th anniversary of iconoclast John Lennon's death.

Iconoclast: A new software to help you organize the icons on your desktop.

Tom & Icy said...

Iconoclast? Oh. That must be me when I was chewing Sar's icon on my blog. Woof!

Doug said...

I remember him fondly. Cynicism isn't required for membership.

Indie, I wish I knew if you were joking.

Bad doggie!

Minka said...

A sect that allows icy to be a member. Didn´t know Sar was particularly religious though. Well, she adored that shoe though!

Iconoclast,n., Blogger, these last few days.

Also see, or hear, Neil Sedaka's Breaking Up Is Hard to Do. This iconoclast stuff ain't so easy.

Sar said...

Desecrating the very stiletto I tread in is sacriligious!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

OMG! Icy did what in your shoe??? I thought she just chewed on it. Bad Icy!

pia said...

True confession time: I love Neil Sedaka. While's he not an iconoclast, his music makes me happy.

But I am the person who only wanted for her elementary school graduation "Last Dance," or songs about lovers being killed.

Doug said...

Monika, I think you have your answer.

Blogger's been a bugger, hasn't it, TLP?

Sar, bless your sole.

TLP, it get's worse.

Pia, sincerity and openness are the first steps on the path to communism. Take a cue from Sar and watch where you tread.

iconoclast (n) - The section of an airliner where big celebrities sit.

iconoclasty (n) - The surgical removal of a desktop icon from Bill Gates butt after your computer freezes for the 10 millionth time.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

When did you change your picture? I just noticed it.

dddragon said...

My thinking cap isn't working, so I'll have to put on my dunce cap instead.

Doug said...

Poobah, I'd rather add one.

This afternoon, you were first.

That's OK, Dddragon. Your dragon's comb is sufficient.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

iconoclast,n.

The person who enters the tent - where the Dalai Lama is apeaking - last.


I\'ll come back later if I come up with something better. I come here first usually on my way to dinner. ;)


I feel bad I forgot John Lennon\'s deathday. :(

Doug said...

He who laughs last is the iconoclast? Makes sense. I think. I'll see you after we eat.

I think you can be forgiven. You weren't born yet. I think it was the day before yesterday. :P

Sar said...

Another icon, huh? Forget Iconoclast...you're iconofickle! ;)

Doug said...

Sar, that was subtle. Well done.

Fred said...

Doe this mean if you work for the president you're an iconoclast?

Jamie Dawn said...

An iconoclast is the guy who always goes against the crowd. If everyone is talking about how much they love Krispy Kreme doughnuts, then this guy will declare his hatred for them and how bad they are for you. If everyone talks about how they are addicted to some show, this guy will lambast everyone for watching the darn thing. Iconoclasts are party poopers!

I hate it when I read blogs so late in the day. I feel like I've missed out on something. Shucks!

weirsdo said...

Unitarian who tips over the coffee pot?

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

Iconoclast, n. (1) One who fails at self-hypnosis; (2) Rebel with a poor fashion sense.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

what was I thinking.... Doug is sort of an iconoclast....

I'm waiting for the bordello story.

Nony Mitchell said...

Considering the politics of this country...I am not touching this one...I would have something rather tacky to say...

Have a great one.

Doug said...

Fred, I think it means about that, yes.

Jamie Dawn, I'm delighted to see you any old time. For some reason your comment reminded me Che Guevera t-shirts. Another possible definition of Iconoclast: An aspiring icon.

Weirsdo, I think it might be dangerous to talk about an iconoclast Unitarian.

Nice, Gabriel.

I'll leave it at your site.

Spiritdancer, I'm so glad you came over. Something tacky on this site? Heaven forfend!

Ariella said...

Doug, I love the new pic.
I hate it when real life interferes with my blogging...
does that say anything about me?

Indeterminacy said...

Doug: You can download it. It's freeware.

Miz BoheMia said...

I could have been first yesterday. But my brain was fried. Now I am what, 27? My brain is still fried...

So, hi! I have been popping in many a time so I thought I might as well say something... Hmmmm...

Nope, stil fried.

Doug said...

Yes, Ariella. It says you are way too generous with your family. You should think about your needs first. Get the AF a ball of yarn to pet while you're blogging/

Indie, I sense a prank but I'll check it out. Kind of a really bad name, though.

Miz B, you are welcome at any time, anywhere in the order, brain-fried or -baked.

Indeterminacy said...

Doug: I was just kidding of course. There is no such thing, (that I know of).

Belinda said...

See, these definitions ri'chere, this is why I lay low 'round these parts. Good work!

Doug said...

Never can be too sure, Indie. That's from saving me from a wasted google,

Belinda, it's always a delight to see you here whether you come to play or to praise.
