Things That Are Like Self-Cleaning Ovens

"The web is like a self-cleaning oven in that it will correct itself over time."
That is so funny (and also, in the middle of a very interesting conversation between Times reporter David Carr and Aaron Sorkin), because I've never heard anything else compared to a self-cleaning oven.

Also funny because: The name notwithstanding, don't self-cleaning ovens generally need to be set to clean by a proactive human being?

(Oh and also the vagina thing.)

The analogy is off. The web is more like a Roomba. It wanders aimlessly in circles and sucks.

I started to read the interview, but was too distracted by the photo of David "Smooth Criminal" Carr.

This post has laid bare my ignorance of both self-cleaning ovens AND vaginas.

@boyofdestiny
The reference is to the close-set rows of concealed teeth in your modern self-cleaning oven.

"But nowadays facts are up for grabs, whether it’s where the president was born or how old the planet is or how much health-care reform is costing—and it’s hard to believe that’s not partly a result of citizen journalism." – Aaron Sorkin

Seriously, Aaron? Last time I checked, Fox News hates the bloggers and internet people almost as much as you do, you pretentious douchebag.
