I found the clip that I referenced in the piece below.
The cognitive level of someone who would think in such terms reminds me of a scene from the HBO special Band of Brothers. A number of GIs are riding in the back of an open truck somewhere in Europe during the World War II, one of whom is reading a newspaper. The soldier sitting next to him says, "So, whatcha reading?" He replies, "Well, I am reading this article about how we got into the war and it says that the Germans are bad." And the other guy sort-of rolls his eyes and says something like, "Oh, is that what it is? Is that why we're at war, because the Germans are bad? Ya don't say."Here's the actual clip:
So, is this a reflection on the guy who wrote the article or, perhaps, the moron reading the article?
"Learn something new every day, eh?"
