"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.

NO, DON'T! THE CAKE IS A LIE!
THE CAKE IS A LIE!
THE CAKE IS A LIE!
THE CAKE IS A LIE!

(if no one gets the reference, I've just made a complete fool of myself)

Gotta love a vidoe game that uses Dickinson and Longfellow quotes as graffiti. What? I'm a total geek on the inside.

Can I have pie? A slice of cherry pie. And coffee? DAMN good coffee! And HOT!

(and if no gets that reference, well... you know the rest)

Jelly donuts? Harry, that goes without saying.

I am a renaissance girl ... Now that was TV worth watching.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! I already have a Rosshole infestation and Alpha Male lurking around. As much as I could use the traffic, DO NOT send any more stupid people my way.
The smarter set of course are always welcome chez moi.

Just let Twatrick Ross blather. Every bit of his public assholitude is just another nail in his coffin, career-wise. He just doesn't understand that. But he will. Some day.

Just ask Kathy Shaidle.

cc: It is kinda like having an escaped zoo monkey wander into your backyard, the antics are amusing at first, but after he starts flinging poop and threatening to bite the family dog, you start to wonder when the hell animal control is gonna show up. Of course having him check the blog ten times a day to see if anyone has responded to his dimwittery is boosting the old hit counter so....feh, maybe I should announce a "troll comment for half-price" day or some such gimmick and let the dingbats run amok for a day or something.
