Now, THIS is an insult!

December 13th, 2007

I found this comment waiting for approval today:

I linked here from some other good blogs and, viagra buy pharm seriously, what’s your deal? You confuse banality with creativity and your demure Reader’s Digest-esque quips make you sound like a dull-witted hausfrau. Write something interesting or shut this shit off.

I point it out because it is a phenomenal put down: erudite and yet earthy, commanding in its complaining, and sublimely mean-spirited as it berates my meaninglessness.

Very few hecklers can attack with a pop culture reference (“Reader’s Digest-esque”) and the use of a foreign language (hausfrau is Deutsch for housewife) in the very same sentence. Surely, this is a tour-de-force of farcical affront.

I hereby request that the rest of you lazy bums who wish to insult me make at least as much effort as this commenter did.

    […] read the comment off of Elliot’s blog to Kelly last night, because it’s just so blasted funny. Something occurred to me at that […]

    I would put in the effort Elliot… but frankly… you’re just not worth the time.

  • 11. Elliot  |  December 14th, 2007 at 9:37 am

    See? Now that actually hurts my feelings, Nick.

    I mean, I consider you worth taking the time to insult.
