“is this annoying? yes, it is.”

i don’t like this trend i keep hearing where people ask themselves a question and then answer it. it’s so weird, like they’re both the interviewer and the interviewee. i just read an interview with MMA fighter michael bisping — who i otherwise love — where he used this technique several times. here’s the best example.

For sure there was doubt there, 100 percent. That’s why I’ve got to take this title shot. That’s why I put my name into the mix. Jacare was ahead of me. I don’t know, I’ve been here for so long, I felt like I was never going to get my shot. Whichever it came around, here we go.

Is it perfect? No. Would I have liked more time? Yes. Am I going to go out there and fight with everything I’ve got? Absolutely. I’m going to take this opportunity and I’m going to make the most out of it.

as much as i love bisping, i can’t fucking stand that question and answer thing. lots of people are doing it now. it’s like the new ‘it is what it is,’ and it’s just as bad. instead of questioning himself, he should have spoken normally and said

it’s not perfect. i would have liked more time but i’m going to go out there and fight with everything i’ve got…

but i guess it is what it is.


“is it what it is? certainly, it is what it is.”
