Cupidity

Posted on: May 18, 2009

cupidity
\kyoo-PID-uh-tee\ | noun

1 : inordinate desire for wealth : avarice, greed
2 : strong desire : lust

The Wall Street fat cats most definitely suffer from cupidity, and honestly don’t understand why the rest of us would look askance at using taxpayer money for huge bonuses to the people who helped get us in the mess in the first place.

Cupidity is stupidity. Enough said.

And it’s impossible for me to find this and not post it. No seriously, literally impossible.

Of course, this isn’t the picture for cupidity. Aragorn is the opposite of cupidity (as is the man who played him). No, the page is drawing a comparison between cupidity (represented by Gollum) and concern (represented by Aragorn). I’m not sure if those are exactly opposite, but it gave me a chance to put Aragorn on my blog so it’s all good to me.
