Things to do in [trochee] when you're dumped

  1. Register your ex's name as a domain and whine about her for ten pages.

  2. There's a 2?

(Via Cruel.com.)

Update, 11 January: Well, this is cute. There's a comment here, identified as from a member of a police department I shall not name, requesting information on this matter. I, of course, didn't have any, and said so. This is the response I got:

There has been a complaint submitted to the [municipality name redacted] Police Department. I would appreciate a phone call. These postings are irritating in nature and would be appreciated if they were taken off the site.

Inasmuch as there is no indication that any of the other half a dozen or so sites who picked up on this link received any similar communications, I'm going to assume that the major objection was actual mention of the town name in the title. Since it's largely irrelevant except for prosodic purposes, I've opted to delete that name; I've also fuzzed up the comment for concealment purposes. (No sense blowing his cover.)

On the other hand, if I deleted everything that might irritate someone, you'd be looking at a blank page right about now.

I read the thing ... drawn to it like a moth to the flame. Talk about issues. And I thought I had it bad sometimes ... meh.

I wonder what he's gonna do with those boots?

That was a lot of fuss over some boots.

Train wreck.

Well, that was scarey. I feel all warm and fuzzy that I don't have to be out dating in a world of unstable people like that guy. Did it remind anyone else of Fatal Attraction... except that Glenn Close's character was a lot saner?

Well...he could have bought the domain name and pointed it to a porn site...
