What’s an Emperor to do when he fears something bad is about to happen?
“Ooo, Ooo…I’m the Emperor!!! Look over here. Here. Right here…Pay no attention to what’s about to happen over there…Look over here!!! This is MUCH more interesting than anything that’s going to happen over there!!!”
The thing about misdirection is that it has to be perfectly timed.
Make no mistake…Mistime your misdirection and the misfortune of your misadventure will NOT be…missed.
In the last week, the Emperor has employed 2 misdirections. One was well thought out and well planed in advance while the other was hastily thrown together.
The problem is, both were mistimed in their execution.
