Was this just a pick up from the "vomitorium" comments? It's not a stand alone. Good comment. Crappy IA. Should have left it where it belonged.

Sipe, don't stud, bunny.
Mar 23 Paddy Mac commented on What Is "Clickbait"?.
Clickbait is a headline (and a nuthed) that relies on the reader's imagination (and/or provokes it) rather than an accurate description of the content. Just about any hed with a question mark is click bait. Or any Salon article with Stephen Colbert in the hed. "Health Dept. cites International District restaurant 27 times in one year" is a standard hed. "Have you eaten at the filthiest restaurant in Seattle?" is clickbiat.
Mar 10 Paddy Mac commented on I Was the MFA Student Who Made Ryan Boudinot Cry.
Boudinot's article was tame obviousness. The whining it summoned bore him out. I think MFA CW programs are harmless and unfortunately, so are most graduates. If med schools had their record, the decibels would be too high to record. Tell you what... Read DFW's essay "Fictional Futures and the Conspicuously Young" and then come back and tell me what a boogie man Ryan Boudinot is.

Being chased by Kelly O must be very scary.

Don't worry. The literary wears off pretty soon.

Peanut oil is great stuff. Takes heat. Lasts a long time. Very little taste. But what the hell is the big deal adding a line to the menu: "We use peanut oil for frying."

When this happens, the best thing to do is look the blazer wearing dildo straight in the eye and smile happily -- imagine yourself missing the fateful flight -- and then gracefully bowing out, which should be done in a Fred Astaire fashion, ideally, with a carefree whistle as you depart.

Don't make the mistake that the election is right now. We still have to go through two years of what's going to be one of the most toxic political shit storms in American history. You think people are disgusted now? Just wait. They're going to be so pissed off they're going to stampede the polls. The turnout will help the Democratic candidate and hurt the Republican. Knowing that, the Republicans should play nice. Will they? Are you friggin' nuts? By summer of 2016 the Republicans will be howling and spitting like Tasmanian devils off their meds throwing their ripped out intestines at each other. And Hillary Clinton will seem like a nice calm pool of crystal clear spring water. I know. Seems impossible now. But just you wait.

What the hell is wrong with Secondo di Giurno? Second of June.



(or as Italians call it Festa della Repubblica)
