I got the funniest email today, and I just had to share it with you. The “re” line was as follows: “Gibbering baboons more sensible than you, wingnut degenerate.” I was intrigued. The rest of the email consisted of a link to a post, along with the full text of the post in which the author explained precisely why I don’t even rank up there with gibbering baboons and, worse, I’m a “wingnut degenerate.”
I debated whether to share the link with you guys, ’cause I think the author is just trying to generate traffic. However, because both the email title and the blog post had me laughing hysterically, I think the post author deserves some recognition. Go here and check it out. Then, come back to me and tell me if you can understand the author’s thesis.
I’ve read the darn post three times now and I still can’t figure out what the point is. I know I’m a lower mammalian life form and a degenerate but, for the life of me, I don’t understand what I did to earn those interesting sobriquets. I mean, it’s clear that I shouldn’t have said what I said, but the post author never seems to bring himself to explaining why I shouldn’t have said those things. He sneers, but he never manages to rise to the level of thesis, fact and argument. His post is the written equivalent of this — it definitely makes a statement, but one that reflects solely on the person making the statement, not the person at the receiving end.
