During George W. Bush’s speech tonight at the Republican National Convention, Al Franken is urging New Yorkers to shout their trademark phrase ‘fuggedaboutdit!’
I don’t think it will have the impact he’s looking for, given the phrase’s relative ambiguity:
“Forget about it” is like if you agree with someone, you know, like “Raquel Welsh is one great piece of ass forget about it.” But then, if you disagree, like “A Lincoln is better than a Cadillac? Forget about it!” you know? But then, it’s also like if something’s the greatest thing in the world, like Mingrio’s Peppers, “forget about it.” But it’s also like saying “Go to hell!” too. Like, you know, like “Hey Paulie, you got a one inch pecker?” and Paulie says “Forget about it!” Sometimes it just means forget about it.
