Come on. Admit it. We've all been there. There's some moment or situation on our lives that we were guilty of blowing something out of all reasonable proportion. Nobody is reasonable and sane 100% of the time - at least if you're honest with yourself.
The current political scene here in the USA and in other countries is a prime example of today's topic in action. So deep are the lines drawn in the sand that when either side passes gas the other pounces on that fact and blasts the offender as an unpatriotic, society destroying boob.
Kids are great at making much ado about nothing - especially when it comes to hurting themselves in some minor way. After long periods of wailing and crying the application of a simple band aid usually solves the matter. Regardless of the owie - a band aid is typically a fix-all response.
In many cases some folks will blow anther's error out of all proportion - simply to make themselves look better. Although the result is often completely the opposite it happens regularly in the business world.
As the source of the saying concerned spying and gossiping about others (at least that is what I am led to believe as I am not nor have I ever been a fan of Shakespeare) an analogous to the NSA and it's obsessive reading of emails and listening to phone calls seems also in order. And the obsessive use of so-called traffic cameras everywhere - common in the UK and an the rise here - seems also to be an example of overkill. We are rapidly becoming a society based on spying, snooping, gossip and rumor. All central themes in Much Ado About Nothing.
Looking for a classic example of the topic in action? Take a look at what right-wing pundit Ann Coulter says about the World Cup. God forbid you like tacos, curry, bangers and mash or something.
So it seems there are countless examples of much ado about nothing screaming "Look at me!" Secrets and secrecy abound. Gossip is everywhere. Here's a musical example that does real justice to Much Ado About Nothing.
That's my quick take on today's topic. Time to see what the other LBC folks have to say.
