This scheme's just six words long
It was no doubt tendered in good faith, but reading the suggestions is like licking a corroded battery. The latter-day sub-Menckens will always get off the sharpest lines, of course; you can't draw a laugh with something Grandma might knit on a pillow, and drawing a laugh or a mirthless snort of appreciation, which counts as a laugh nowadays is the prime objective.
We are all sub-Menckens, I submit: some are just sub-er than others.
That said, I'd like to argue for the adoption of this, expanded to incorporate the standard Oedipus-via-Samuel L. Jackson adjectival twist but that's only five words, dammit.Posted at 9:04 AM to Almost Yogurt
