Vaguely similar in theory to the Postmodern Text Generator
, but practiced individually, rather than Markov-chain-generated text. The creator, Julian Baggini, describes Žižuku thus: "The rules are simple: pick on any widely received idea and find the most clever-sounding way to invert it, so as to create a paradox, or at least the semblance of one."
We've had a lot of previous Žižek-related posts on MeFi
, including a documentary on Žižek
and this, erm, interesting interview
, so throw in some references to Kung-Fu Panda or Mickey Mouse, get into the spirit of the kritik
or consider this parody of Deconstruction
, and turn ideas inside-out!
Perhaps you ought to simply follow Stammer's sage advice here
