"Be Nice to a Dumbfuck" Day: 35 hours and counting.
Just think ... less than a day and a half until you're expected to be polite to total smegheads for a full 24 hours. And I've been asked about the actual rules, so here they are, for what it's worth.
Be civil. For a whole day.
That's it. What else were you expecting? You still have every right to shred someone's argument if they're being a dipshit but, rather than describe them as a "retarded hypocrite," keep it to "hypocrite." There's absolutely nothing wrong with accusing someone of hypocrisy if that's what they're doing. Make the claim, then back it up. Take stupid people out to the woodshed and paddle them soundly. Simply do it lovingly and methodically and politely.
And, if you're not sure, err on the side of caution. It's only 24 hours -- you can behave yourself for that long. And when it's over, we can all traipse over to check out the BTs and see how determinedly they ignored this, and how they continued to lie their faces off. Yes, it'll be great fun.
Next time, I'll bring cake.
