|The awkward hug scene (The Pink Panther 2)|
There was something about burning down a restaurant that ignited other more illicit fires... and I'm sorry about that.
As am I; terribly remorseful.
It was a night to remember that we must forget.
We must never forget to not remember it.
And if we do remember it, we must immediately forget it. Now let's have a professional hug goodbye.
This scene from The Pink Panther 2, reminds me a little of how the Germans remember the holocaust these days. It's a classic case of virtue-signalling and schadenfreude gone too far. And that might be the only reason to remember it. I think the Germans have done enough, more than enough, actually -- and it's time for them to get a move on, now. Seriously.
