"Outraginess" is a spectacle similar to the emotion "outrage" but distinguished by its higher production values.
To properly prepare for an Outraginess event, one must assemble the proper crew, performers and props.
- the "Let's Get Ready to RUMBLE!" guy (or his Mexican counterpart the "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL" guy
- army of Christian sign-carriers
- a forest of signs sporting Glorious Slogans and Cliches
- dozens of marching bands, must be able to spell out entire issue while playing "We're not Gonna Take It!"
- television cameras, lots and lots of them, like for Monday Night Football
- vocal conditioning for the parade of mourning ancient Italian or Jewish grandmothers
- Talk radio callers and personalities have memorized their scripts and phone lines unblocked.
- hundreds of pounds of "fireworks"
- one million doves
- that crying kid from Jesus Camp
If any of these cast members are not available, a substitute is acceptable.
The Spectacle ItselfEdit
The spectacle of outraginess must far exceed what any reasonable person would expect from whatever perceived (or imagined) slight may have precipitated it.
