The World Is Not a Meritocracy

Two examples:

(1) Herman’s Hermits had more chart-toppers than The Hollies. (I think that’s the stat; it’s something along those lines.)

(2) Andy Dick charges more for appearances than Louie CK. (Although Louis CK–same guy, different head shot–asks you to contact his agent. Weird. Is that because corporate suits would naturally look up “Louis” whereas the club owners remember him from his HBO show? Is this a goof or price discrimination?)

And if you’re thinking, “I’ve heard of Andy Dick, but who’s Louis CK?” well thanks for proving my point. (Try this, but watch out for naughty language.)
