P.S.R.I.P.

"As people increasingly communicate in short bursts of words, via text messaging and emails, they are finding less use for 'P.S.' The Latin abbreviation refers to something 'written after' the body of a letter. But it is also a cherished part of epistolary tradition that entered the spoken language, inspiring songs and movies."

@NotAndersonCooper Good news! The fucking French are bringing back carrier pigeons. Sealing wax cannot be far behind. (Of course it will be artisinal sealing wax lovingly grown in a Brooklyn chicken coop.)

@jolie That's sealing chickenshit. Sealing wax comes from artisanal bees. (Arbeesanal.)

An entire article about "P.S." and they don't even mention it stands for "postscript." That's some mighty fine police work there, Lou.

I often use P.S. in emails. Am I doing this digital thing wrong then?

Yours, etc.

Wait, does that mean EVERY comment should start with a P.S.?
