In honor of COG week I propose a game called Spot the COG. Which of these two images represents a COG?
On the left is a hard working blue collar man. As a straight arrow, he chafes at the loser teenagers toking up in his basement. His highest ideal is to raise children who are not dumbasses and then kick them out the door. Trapped in the 1970’s, he faces difficult times in an era of recession. His one trip overseas was when he was drafted by the army. He enjoys the company of his wife and spends his free time puttering around the garage. He thinks you should go away and leave him alone.
On the right is a real world James Bond villain. As a ruthless schemer, he has killed more people by breakfast than most terrorists will in a lifetime. His highest ideal is to rule like an evil and vengeful God…which is exactly what he does. Faced with formidable foes, he killed or jailed them one by one…while smiling. His trips overseas usually involve starting wars and terrifying diplomats. He enjoys dominating his people and spends his free time shirtless and slaying wildlife. He could have you killed. He’s considering it right now.
