The Urge To Outrage The Ladies' Aid SocietyYard Work AKA Baseball Tonight got into it for Hee Seop Choi recently, garnering enthusiastic endorsements from FJT and Concerned But Powerless. It's funny, to a point, but their profanity-laced writing reminds me too much of Eddie Murphy's less-than-comic triumphs; Tourette's Syndrome might work as a punchline, but it's painful in real life, and merely tedious as style.
Update: Touched a nerve, did we? And to think, a year ago the Dodgers blogiverse was such a quiet place.
OT: Promotional Stuff I Get, #302 In A Series: Devil Ducky
Speaking Of FunnyIdiot Philip Michaels has silly things to say about Red Sox pitcher David Wells, but the best part is his updated Colonel Kurtz monologue at the end. And no, he doesn't remind me so much of this guy as this guy. Expect the goggles to appear any day now.
OT: Customizable GoogleGoogle is starting to put together a customizeable version, not unlike My Yahoo. My Yahoo is still way cooler, of course, but I expect Google will give 'em a run for their money.
i love a good catfight!
i personally thought the tommy blog parody was hilarious. almost spit coffee all over the monitor.
a) ticked 'em off
b) sent 'em a whole bunch of traffic
... because a couple weeks ago I said the site needed an editor and didn't get so much as a "thankyouf***ymuch"
I agree with Vic, the Easterbrook is a spot-on parody, the Angell amusing.
(Of course, I know who's behind it -- in an Internet-y sort of way -- so I tend to give them a little more latitude. Sorry one of them apparently went a bit over the line.)
