(1) I'm not the biggest fan of the more juvenile aspects of The Ticket, but I have to confess (of course) that the Hardline's new "Throw Down Your Anus" challenge had me larfing mightily in the old Conestoga yesterday on the way home. The guy ("Ted") who was talking to his girlfriend/wife about giving medicine to the cat, and her absolute I'm-not-having-any-of-your-nonsense responses while putting away groceries (and knocking down a shelf in the process) -- ya know, one likes to think one is a sophisticated consumer of highbrow humor, but Ted (who is apparently a law student) and his anus talk and w/g's responses about had me driving off the road.
(2) We have a pretty amazing population of Confessors here. All of the people signing themselves "not" someone triad of obscure philosophers or fictional characters . . . I don't really even care if the writer had to look those people up or whether they knew who they were to begin with. I'm getting a nice education just looking them up.
(3) Listen up, pilgrims: You got a point to make, make it. I'm reading along in some of these comments, and the comment is fine, well-put, legit, and then, in the last sentence, the author seems to feel the need to take a shot at another commenter's intelligence, motives, identity, whatever.
As Bob Newhart said: Stop it.
