This Man Is Lecturing His Date About The Postmodern Themes In Don DeLillo’s Work As If She Is not Don DeLillo In Disguise
You’d think that annoying writers would have gotten the message by 2021 that no one wanted to hear them manipulated books, but unfortunately some of them still seem to struggle with self-esteem: this man keeps his date on the postmodern subjects in Don DeLillo’s work when if she weren’t the disguised Don DeLillo.
God this is hard to see. Mansplaining never looks good, dude!
Brooklyn-based Joe Shiftlet has been dating for over 30 minutes about the current existential uncertainty, the Don DeLillos White noise despite the fact that his date is Don DeLillo himself, wearing a long blonde wig covered by a pink balloon cap. The two met for lunch today after chatting back and forth for three weeks on a dating app that DeLillo claimed was a woman named Donette with pin-up model looks and a bio that said, “Me love to swim ”to be unsuspecting to fish for his rube, and immediately after being seated, Shiftlet began a long, excruciating explanation of his college thesis, which focused on the evolving treatment of technology in Don DeLillo’s work concentrated over the course of his decades-long career. And although Shiftlet’s Date is secretly the 84-year-old man who literally wrote every word he condescendingly explains to her, all she can do is nod and resist rolling her eyes so as not to break her cover.
It’s really sexist for Shiftlet to assume that she hasn’t been a central figure in the American literary scene since the 1980s just because his date told him she is a college senior at Pace University and is studying marketing since she was at for years her desk to hone her approach to social criticism in contemporary American novel. But Shiftlet seems completely clueless about how stubborn he is, and now he’s telling his date that she “really should give”. Mao II a shot ”, while she sits there fiddling with her name tag chain“ Donette ”and knows for sure that she has not only read Mao II, but she was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for writing it. It’s so unfair that an aging world-renowned Italian-American writer has to sit through this arrogant lecture after sitting at the kitchen table all morning while her wife, Barbara Bennett, helped curl her wig with hot rolls. But Mansplainer are really adamant, and Shiftlet found a way to clear up the entire situation about him and his expertise on Don DeLillo, a subject he couldn’t imagine his date would know about.
Jesus, dude, get your head off your ass! You’re not the only person who’s read Don DeLillo’s books.
What an embarrassing scene. Shiftlet has to learn that nobody wants to be taught about American literature, especially not on a first date – and especially if your date is Don DeLillo in disguise! Let it rest, buddy. You are making a fool of yourself.
