Strobe Witherspoon writes a fictional memoir of a fictional former FLOTUS and it has become quite a controversy. Things get totally out of hand and to say that he has taken the heat for it is an understatement. Although there were a few intellectual takes about his latest work, most of the discourses that came about were just plain stupid. This is actually the premise of OOF, short for Online Outrage Fiesta: How can a satire, or any kind of content for that matter, elicit so many interpretations (some of which can be extremely out of context) and turn into a global nightmare when this wild mix of interpretations snowballs on the internet. Is this what has become of us as consumers of mass media? Is this what journalism has now evolved into?
Strobe Witherspoon's OOF is consistently intriguing. Informal, humorous, and sarcastic, its writing style will surely keep the audience devouring every page. At first, it was just about the FLOTUS' memoir, but it grows into something more, something deeper that makes this book a work of art. It's as clear as day what Witherspoon is trying to convey. Each story in this so-called compendium is interesting. The narrative's chronological order and delivery are nothing short of smart. He throws in a variety of articles, tweets, blog posts, podcast transcripts, email correspondences and so much more that makes this book realistic and relevant. This is not only about the comedic approach; this is a paradox that reveals a lot about humanity that will get people either laughing or shaking their heads because it's so true. Most importantly, this will get people thinking about our current state and how can we collectively do better, even with disagreeing opinions.
