All-Purpose

Can you believe that politician? How do these guys think they can get away with this stuff? That party is always pulling crap like this. Throw the bums out!

And that movie star is at it again. When is he gonna learn? It's like, hello? Time to start living right, big guy.

What in the world was that pop star wearing at that awards ceremony? Doesn't she pay a whole team of people lots of money to make her look good? Did they go on strike?

My favorite TV show just isn't the same lately. It's like they're just going through the motions. Everybody's still watching it, so I guess they must be doing something right. But it's just not the same as it was.

The thing that one blogger said was stupid and dumb. Get a clue, jerk.

A member of the mainstream media made a mistake. Stop stealing your paycheck, member of the mainstream media!

Tipjar on the right.

It's ABOUT FUCKING TIME someone with a blog and courage started tellin' it like it is and focusing on these oft-overlooked issues.

Whoa, wait a minute, I just noticed this part:

"My favorite TV show just isn't the same lately."

How dare you say this? And you call yourself a _______? I am DELINKING you, you bastard.

That one comment you made was so funny!

Damn, my city and/or state's baseball team...they always start strong in April, only to slip in May and be totally out of it by June.

"glad to see you coming around on the IRaq war's wrongness Jim Treacher"

You are the world's most persistent troll, and it's brilliant. :)

Hmm...tip jar on the right, well maybe a penny for your thoughts.

"That party is always pulling crap like this."

Maybe, but have you even looked at their opponents lately? Now, who are the real crooks here?

"My favorite TV show just isn't the same lately."

Are you insane?! Did you even SEE last week's episode?! I would never, not in a million years, have guessed that he was involved in anything like that. Talk about suspense and/or comedy and/or action!

"The thing that one blogger said was stupid and dumb."

Of course you would say that.

This is your worst post since the one about that current event that everyone was talking about at the time. What a garbage dump THAT was.

P.S. That "iraqwarwrong" fellow sounds familiar... Does Puce have any offspring that may have been raised near a Slovenian fertilizer plant?

Posted by: Nash Kato at April 22, 2005 12:24 AM

I heard that one company (you know the one) is at it again. Buncha crooks, in my opinion.

I'm just upset about that local sports team. What the hell is the matter with them?

Posted by: G. Bob at April 22, 2005 06:37 AM

What about that one feud between that writer and that other writer? It had something to do with blogging, and writing, and there was a lot of back and forth, and my side was so obviously right, it was just crazy. Because, you know, those other people on the other side of the issue are just wrong.

Posted by: Rob at April 22, 2005 07:28 AM

What is it with that select group of people? Don't they realize that they have it better here vs. over there.

And what is the deal with that type of airline food? Why are the portions always of a certain size and particular taste?

Posted by: pete at April 22, 2005 10:04 AM

And what's with those certain cars? Who drives those? Why don't they learn to drive, anyway?

I think I'm sick of that person that has been creeping women out recently....oh wait, that' me.

Posted by: Steve Adams at April 22, 2005 10:33 AM

Jim I think everything you wrote is pure crap and I can't believe you keep posting this kind of crap and as soon as I get some real human friends I'll start talking to them instead of trying to get your readers to talk to me.

Posted by: Sean P at April 22, 2005 09:41 PM

I fail to see what this has to do with Tom DeLay's involvement with Pope Hitler over the Terri Schiavo case. Antisemite.

Posted by: Beck at April 23, 2005 12:03 AM

Why don't you stop wasting our time writing posts like this, and write that other kind of post? We come here to read the sort of post you used to write (and sometimes still do, but not as frequently as we demand), not this kind of post, which you write more often, at least recently, despite our wishes.

Furthermore, I resent your crack about "that one blogger." Like the rest of my critics, I notice you didn't address the substance of my charges, instead falling back on name-calling. You remind me of that really dishonest guy -- not to mention that brutal dictator!

Posted by: Sean Gleeson at April 23, 2005 06:34 AM

Why don't you just worry about your own life, Mr. Clean Living? That movie star is only hurting himself, and he sure as hell doesn't want you running his life -- I know I wouldn't.

Get a clue, jerk.

Posted by: Matt at April 23, 2005 08:33 AM

Sean Gleeson:

Oh there you go mentioning that brutal dictator! Honestly, that is so tiring, and just proves you'd just like to cut other people down rather than make any kind of constructive argument of your own. Not only that, its just the sort of tactic that other brutal dictator (the one with the thicker moustache) would use to silence his critics.

Posted by: Sean P at April 23, 2005 09:09 AM

That politician isn't doing anything different from what those other politicians before him did. Why don't you ever mention that? It's because this politician is in a different thing from the other ones, isn't it? That's what you always do.

You're right about that mainstream media person. You'd think that they'd learn to look into stories like that before they throw them to the public like so much red meat. I hope that guy sues them. If anyone ever said something like that about me, let me tell you that I would take an action that they would find unpleasant.

Posted by: Pablo at April 23, 2005 11:08 AM

Like it really matters what a bunch of self-important jerks like all of you think-- sittin around your computers wearing your pajamas.

The original story may have been fake, but it was accurate.

Posted by: Grumpy Misfit at April 23, 2005 01:04 PM

Isn't it a bit hypocritical to pick on the movie star? Can you honestly say you've never done it? What makes it so especially condemnable in his case? That he got caught? That he did it while smeared with strawberry preserves? Or is it, as I suspect, merely that he's a movie star? Are we to keep separate lists of sins for movie stars than for the rest of us now? Does it shatter your worldview to know that movie stars are imperfect human beings? Are you wondering when I'll end a sentence with some punctuation other than? Did it ever occur to you that I might be saving my declarative sentence until the end of my comment, giving it extreme rhetorical emphasis? Do yourself a favor, pal.

Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?

And that one sports star. What a scandal!

Posted by: Jason at April 25, 2005 02:57 PM

OT: Sorry to go off on a tangent here, but I just heard that our favorite nut-case movie star is making a new made-for-TV movie! He's playing some sort of politician who moonlights as a popstar, see?, but no one knows the pop star and the politician are the same guy, see? Anyway, the suspense is all built around keeping his secret identity but some blogger (based on you know who!) breaks the story but the MSM doesn't pick up on it for WEEKS and then finally they are FORCED to and then, it's like, totally mayhem and all his movie fans are like - whoa, and all his consistuents are like - man, and it's really cool.

You know that one blogger? How come he hardly ever posts anymore?

Posted by: Sean M. at April 26, 2005 11:12 PM

lol! Best message board EVER :p

Posted by: Ken at April 27, 2005 05:45 AM

Hey, I wrote something really longwinded about this on my off-kilter and not-very-good blog that nobody reads, but which I advertise with paid blog-ads nearly all over the place.

Furthermore, I wrote something about this kind of thing a while back here.

And I also said something really smart about it, but not on topic, here.

Posted by: Al Maviva at April 27, 2005 07:44 PM

Nash Kato? Get out of town! When are you following up on Debutante? I think you should steal Russel Simins from Jon Spencer. That would be a good start.

Posted by: slickdpdx at April 28, 2005 02:16 PM

Did you hear about that one blogger who intermittently hurls vacuous air darts against a tree ... and then lurks with self-satisfaction while his readers come up with a brilliantly funny and creatively Dartboard of Substance?

Now that we're getting things off our chests... what about that stupid actress? The one who thinks she's all that. I'm like, hey babe, look in the mirror, you are definitely NOT.

I never thought I'd say it, but she's getting to be just like that other actress.
