Goofy email of the day

Today's goofy email comes from a guy who evidently wants me to stop blogging:
"You come across as a disgruntled former employee with an axe to grind. Perhaps you should move on with your life."

I emailed him back and advised him to stop reading my blog.

Did he type with a Hindi accent or a San Francisco lisp?

I have a hunch he works for McClatchy. Which would make him a "disgruntled current employee."

Yeah, only a McClatchy fanboy would think that there are more disgruntled former employees than disgruntled stock holders, disgusted customers, competitors, ecstatic short sellers, innocent victims of their editorial boards and advocacy journalism, all of whom may absolutely relish the prospects of their demise.

He has a point. You should perhaps spend more time outside. Or read a good book.

As for the San Francisco lisp: Is that a funny way of referring to homosexuality? Just checking. I think that since Larry Craig was picked up cruising in the airport, gay jokes are pretty much passe for everyone. Just FYI, so you don't look old fashioned.

I thought it was funny and Larry Craig simply highlighted the hilarity of the nonsensical notion that "everyone" thinks it is, "passe". In fact, only a fudge packing leftist would even bother to demand someone else spend their time in the manner that they dictate.

Now, go sip you latte, dress up as a nun with crotchless pantie, and assault a Christian so you can be modern.

BTW, 100$ says you're the one that sent the email.

I think fudge-packing should be hyphenated, because it's a compound modifier.

Actually, it occurs to me you may not know many gay people. Of course, there are the nun dresser-uppers, who remind me quite a bit of Oakland Raider fans. They're pretty famous, which is why you know them.

But a nun disguise may not be enough to help you recognize them: There are lots of gay people. You should get to know their characteristics.

Most gay people are into stuff like cooking, walking, enjoying music, throwing parties, decorating Christmas trees and the like. Lots of them are tall, except for the short ones. Many of them call themselves "Bob" -- but their real names are Robert.

If you memorize these identifying traits, it will be help in avoiding them. This will be a blessing, as there is no chance you will bore them.

I think McClatchy Watch gathers up various tidbits of information, tosses in an opinion and perspective; and mostly importantly, allows feedback.

Unlike the newspapers editorial boards, where editors are befuddled why the same five senior citizens are the only readers to respond with letters to the editors.

I agree wholeheartedly. On this groundbreaking blog, of course, one has the same five senior citizens posting comments. A tremendous improvement.

"Goofy email of the day?" This was the judgment of someone who thinks we won the war in Iraq! What a right-wing idiot! Why don't you jerks do us all a favor and go eat your guns.
