Georgetown grad gets life advice via Tumblr
On 1001 Rules for My Unborn Son, writer and TV producer Walker Lamond writes tidbits of clever insight and usually-lighthearted quotations to advise his future progeny (or current progeny—the author now has a small child).
And since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and the Internet is big enough for as many similarly-minded Tumblr pages as its users feel compelled to create, one apparent fan of this quirky advice page decided to put a slight twist on the idea, and offer advice to his younger brother, a recent Georgetown grad. The result is the markedly un-cleverly titled new blog, Rules for My Younger Brother.
The page’s subheadline reads “Here’s [sic] all the rules I wish an older brother told me,” and underneath it Big Bro pffers up a bunch of guidelines. They range from the archaically insightful (“Praise your opponent”) to the vaguely condescending (“Pick up hired help”), and some could even be taken as a little offensive.
