Exposure on a night out

Feeling a bit unwell after a night out.

My significant other said :

“It wouldn’t surprise me if we caught something from the other night.

We don’t get much exposure these days.”

“Ah, The diseased populus,” I said, “The pox populi.”

It did leave me wondering what century I was born in.


Vox populi, vox Dei is the full phrase, meaning the voice of the people is the voice of God.

Everyday on any news channel a reporter tries to give credence to his biased report by finding enough people to say something that would fit into the report that he had already written.

This is a vox pop, an attempt to give an air of veracity to the media report.

The rule is – when watching a vox pop – you assume every who appears is an idiot.

If you are on a vox pop – Apply common sense rule  458 : ‘the exception proves the rule.’

Vox populi
