That’s me, second from the right.
As a kid, I heard a lot of things cast my way (even from my folks) about being a “Smart Aleck” cause I had a snappy, saracastic answer to anything They never defined it, there was no google, so I just had to infer what they meant. But it was pretty clear.
An American term for an impudent or obnoxiously self-assertive or conceited individual who thinks they know everything and are not shy about saying so; a pompous no-it-all; a haughty, self-important fool; a wise guy.
Yep, and with the internet and self publishing and navel gazing blogging and what I ate for lunch twittering and facebook walling in all the above spaces, can there be a more suitable place for us modern day Alec Hoags?
So even if all of the tubes come crashing down or it is all vacuumed clean by some moral panic, I shall relish these past years where the internet has provided the perfect place to be the son of Jack and Wise.
Thanks for all the fish.
