Isn’t it obvious that one should be subtle? I mean, where would we be without obvious subtlety? Obviously, subtlety is a good thing, ain’t it? There is nothing more obvious than flaunting subtlety. Obviously. Up-front subtlety is the best kind, or? In-your-fucking-face-subtlety. Glitter-subtlety. Bling-subtlety. Christ almighty, subtle subtlety ain’t worth shit: no one notices it, in this day and age. Passé. Subtle subtlety just goes down in the mass. You have to make clear, first of all, that you are being subtle. And once you have people’s attention, then you can proceed. Subtly. Hush, dear, someone is trying to be subtle. Shhhh.
