The expression "Rum Shop Logic" figures in the news. A Rum Shop is like a bar. And it's kinds of an excellent expression that could well describe many a random or ill considered utterance. News is certainly a relative thing so I guess whether "Rum Shop Logic" is actually news depends on a number of variables.
My own current and worrying concerns are with a thing called Words With Friends.
Once a person recovers from the internal debate about whether "Words With
Friends" is a variation on the theme of "Rum shop Logic" or possibly a Reddit
Forum, they discover that Words With Friends is like scrabble on the internet.
Cringe if you have to, but at least it's not "charades" which of course is
another word for the internet.
