I always imagined the unpunctionified(that is certainly not a word but whatever) title to be using rabbit as an adjective, and talking about "silly rabbit idealism" as a noun group. But it's not like that anymore and now the title sounds really really stupid. Sorry, I shouldn't say "they changed it now it sucks" but it does suck now. D:

But it's a reference to the advertising slogan. The phrase "silly rabbit idealism" doesn't really make any sense.

"A true cynic would be cynical about their cynicism."

I don't see how this makes any sense. It's like saying a tolerant person can't be intolerant of intolerance – why can't they?

"A true cynic would be cynical about their cynicism."

Strangely enough, I can understand this almost perfectly. The "true cynic" mentioned in this really wants to be more optimistic, but the hard facts of life and reality in general prevent him from being more optimistic. He's "cynical about his cynicism" because he hates the fact that he's such a cynic, but there's really nothing else he can be, since Growing Up Sucks and The Pollyanna is most likely either a Stepford Smiler or just deluded.

Cynicism is a flawed philosophy and a true cynic can see that. But compared to wide-eyed idealism....
