This cartoon reminded me about how much spin is entrenched in our culture. I think that maybe Henry Kissinger was one of the first modern day spinners when he said:
It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but a matter of what is perceived to be true.
Here are a few definitions that I found:
Spin: (slang) a particular viewpoint or bias, esp. in the media; slant

Spin: a distinctive interpretation (especially as used by politicians to sway public opinion)
Here is my acrostic style definition:

Special Personal Interprative Notion

It is a sad fact that, even in no-spin-zones, spin can be exchanged for reality and truth. In politics, work, entertainment and in religion spin prevails often masquerading itself as 'the truth'. Have you experienced spin on a personal level?
