often brought up by attendees at my annual $10,000 a week Dumb Camp is meditation. Can relaxation and internal focus help one obtain the dumbness needed to become transcedently apathetic to lifes challenges? Hell,
no! That's why I have taken the idea of meditation
and twisted it into a workable dumb excercise I call "meddle-tation." In meditation, the goal is to clear your mind. In meddle-tation, the goal is to clutter up your mind with pointless
trivia, deep rooted anxieties and any
other "thought clods" that will potentially keep you from behaving intelligently.
in meddle-tation often have a hard time creating their own thought-clods, so I have created a few stupid situations for you to ponder. Just concentrate on one or more of the following senarios and before long, intelligent thought
will be leaving on that midnight train to Georgia.
Meddle-tation Scenario 1: Imagine you are naked in the middle of a deserted
parking lot. A midget holding an electric
razor approaches you and offers to shave your legs. You, on the other hand, would much rather play tether ball.
Meddle-tation Scenario 2: An apple fritter the size of a tractor tire crashes
through the roof of your home and crushes
your living room couch. Instead of notifying the authorities, you decide instead to introduce the oversized pastry to family members as your fiancee Bruno.
Meddle-tation Scenario 3: You awaken one morning only to find that both of
your hands have become rolls of ultra-soft
toilet paper. Do you consider this a curse or a blessing?
