I am overly fond of Choire Sicha. That other one is okay too, I guess.
@hockeymom I just adore this new ("new" HEH) Cruel Choire. "I'm retiring, loyal subjects!" "We're taking away your comment section, loyal subjects!" "I've made arrangements for the offing of Bill Clinton, loyal subjects!"
The best part is that we take it.
@Brendan O'Connor@facebook Ooooh. Yes! But also: May we request the return of the Choire Sicha Style Reports? Those were so so so major.
Oh my God DO NOT EVEN with this talk of Grampy Bubba dying. DO NOT EVENNNNNNNNN. What kind of monster...?!?!
@KarenUhOh If they're gonna take the comments away from us, I'm glad we're going down fighting. That was sublime, Karen.
@BadUncle "tend to be ..." was a deliberate choice of words on my part
@Brendan O'Connor@facebook It was a real God damned ladder. (He was fine, he managed to stay on the thing and continue his performance while making the VERY WISE CHOICE to leave me the fuck out of it.)
@Brendan O'Connor@facebook A be-costumed person of any sort on stilts is marginally worse than a person on stilts wearing street clothes but really the terror margin is negligible. AND OH GOD DON'T GET ME STARTED ON MIMES. I once assaulted a mime, and I'm not even sorry for it. (He harassed me first, so I pushed his stupid ladder. While he was on it.)
Oh well? They tend to be cleaner, and also then you're not doing it next to a urinal. (Urinals terrify me almost exactly as much as do people on stilts, and people on stilts are to me what scary clowns are to the rest of the world.)
It's interesting that, at a time when sites are eliminating comments and the trend is to write posts with pictures instead of units of language, Denton is doubling down on words. (Kinja, as an editor/CMS, makes the use of photos within posts quite difficult. It's not as bad if you're using Kinja as a commenting platform, and Nick seems to make a distinction between the two, hence.) I quite like words! So that's mostly a good thing, though it is way more frustrating than it need be to include illustrative images, that are separate from the incredible artwork we're provided with, in posts.
(Look, I see the writing on the wall and know that our time here as commenters is limited so just humor me, I'm feeling nostalgic for 2010.)
@KarenUhOh I often find myself wondering if Spinderella still has that Treo.
