Typing Monkey

As the old theory goes, if you put a bunch of monkeys in front of a computer, sooner or later one of them will write a great novel. Such is the case with what seems to be the first intelligent thought to ever emerge from the mouth of teen heartthrob, Justin Bieber. The Biebs is gracing the current cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, and when the young Canadian was asked about his impressions of America, he offered his opinion of our health care system. "You guys are evil," he told the magazine. "Canada's the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don't need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you're broke because of medical bills." Wow. He's right. But should we be impressed, or is this just a case of "a monkey at a computer"? In other words, if the young singer talks enough, sooner or later something seemingly intelligent was bound to spill out of his mouth. Or maybe this enlightened statement was part of a grand scheme by the young star's handlers to repair the damage done at the recent Grammy Awards where, not only did Bieber win zero awards, but also exposed,in a live performance, what seemed to be a mediocre talent, at best, for singing. Oh my. Quick, Justin, say something else smart!
