King of the Hill

King of the Hill

Khannie: “What did he say?”

Peggy: “A lot of words that sound wise, but mean nothing.”

If you’ve never cottoned to King of the Hill (sadly, just cancelled after 13 seasons), you might want to give it a second chance.

This animated show yields surprisingly incisive social commentary, including caricaturing doublespeak and the ensuing bad behaviour among overly-self-righteous righties and lefties.

The show offers lots of gems about manipulative language to pepper the mix! Will add more as I rediscover them…
