Oh heavens. The whole LeftMedia is experiencing a group leg-tingle. You probably read about it. Or perhaps you heard the love-crazed Fake Newsies howling their coyote love.
BAM!! Boo-ya!! He’s a real man!!! I want to have his baby!!!!
A significantly intense death stare!!! HISTORIC death stare!!!
(yes, they really said that)
Boy, he showed that Putie fellow who was boss! I’m telling ya, when the LeftMedia saw that Manly Display of Deimatic Domination they got all leg-tingly and started popping those Obagra pills like pez candy. The result is kinda scary, all those newsies feeling the love at one time. Trust me, don’t drop the soap anywhere near there.
There’s nothing Barry hates like people who aren’t dazzled by the Awesomeness of Barry. People that say no. People that …aren’t the least bit intimidated when he gives them the meanie look.
Shockingly, the pet media miss the subtext
Many times animal behavior provides telling insights into human behavior. We see ourselves, in a multitude of ways, in the behavior of animals. Species who are not at the top of the food chain (i.e., can be eaten) often have defense mechanisms: camouflage; hard shell; blazing speed or maneuverability; ability to hide; tasting very bad; poisonous bite or sting; or our special flavor of the day, the aggressive display.
The aggressive display is intended to ward off a predator, to startle him into backing off, mainly because you’re out-gunned, out-armored, or out-speeded. Or perhaps because internally you’re just a gutless coward who wants to put up some bluster and “win” by staring down your opponent.
Species at the top of the food chain don’t have to bother with such showy things.
When they look at you, there’s no need for an expression. They’re just sizing you up to see how you might taste for dinner.
