Earlier this year I stumbled across Yoko Ono’s Facebook page.
I forget how that happened, but I think I was curious to see if anyone actually “liked” her. *Ba-Doom Tissssh!*
Anyway, I was reading through her status updates and…wow.
December 29th: “This is a room without a window. People tend to think that sunlight is not coming into the room when there is no window.”
Uh, okay. Weird. Though not unlike all the other pseudo-artistic stuff she’s ever produced.
But what really got me is how after that post, you can actually SEE that she’s proud of herself for having thought of that line, because for DAYS she has follow-ups to it!
December 31st: “Draw a window on the wall to remind you of the sun.”
January 1st: “Draw a window on the wall to remind you of the moonlight that soaks the walls while you are asleep.”
January 2nd: “Draw a window on the wall to remind you of the fog that covers your worries.”
January 3rd: “Draw a window on the wall to remind you of the sunset that makes you smile.”
January 4th: “Draw a window on the wall to remind you of the silkrain that makes things grow.”
(“Silkrain.” Looked it up. Not a word.)
Anyway, I was checking out the comments from the people who follow her, and even THEY were calling bullshit after day three or so.
“Listen, uh…Yoko. As you know, we have a pretty high tolerance for your nonsense, but…”
So I decided to chime in. That’s what’s great about social media – you can tell a “celebrity” what for and they have to read it.
“Yoko, if John were alive today, I like to think he’d have the sense to draw a window on your wall and throw your ass out of it!”
