"Maybe she should sue AutoAdmit?"

Rueful punchline. If you don't get it, David Lat and I provide the background here.

ADDED: The comments at the first link are harrowing.

You mean David Lamb.

Furthermore, if you don't want to be accused of being drunk...don't drink to begin with, and certainly not on camera!

Ann Althouse said...

I choose to drink on camera and taunt people who object as the prigs that they are.

By the way, Maxine, what exactly is the difference between being priggish and prudish? And what about prissy? All the same? Or subtly different?

The meltdown continues...

What a depressing comments thread, for a number of reasons. Truly.

Overall, Loyola seems to have a lot of time on her (?) hands which, under the circumstances, might be better spent in other ways (no offense to Lat). Only sayin'.

Then again, given

"Sure you can work hard, excel and do well eventually, but that's true of any job. The reason I went to law school was to get a leg up over the average citizen"

it might not matter. And, perhaps, shouldn't.

It's probably just as well that I

Clearly Maxine has a huge crush on David Lat. Sometimes I could swear Bissage has hacked in and swiped her username, avatar, and entire mind.

And I become frightened.

Not that it's any of my business but isn't a prig nothing more than a pushy prude? And prissy I'll have to look up but pursed lips
come to mind.

One my favorite Blogginghead shows. I forgot how interesting and amusing, especially between 4:40 and 5:00 at 4:48. Superb.

Hey YOU: Don't get so defensive.

It's very simple: If you never drink, nobody can accuse you of being drunk.

Furthermore, your SONS, on their mySpace profiles, both, say they are drinkers.

Of course they were influenced by Mama. You aren't just making a decision for yourself....you are inculcating your own children, and giving them approval.

It's a mean habit, and it's unclean.

You are setting a bad example.

Try to be above reproach, and then you can throw all the stones you like.

Peace, Maxine

Bissage, man, you are cracking me up.

Anyone who is 30ish and over is lucky not to have been a stupid college student in the era of the digital cameras and the internet. No doubt there will be endless topless photos that will be uncovered 30 years from now when someone is running for President.

In addition to the pounchline, the article provides us a straight line: "What do you call 3,700 unemployed lawyers?"

Palladian said...

Exactly when did Maxine cross the line into creepy stalker?

Meade said...

Maxine a stalker? You mean not every middle-aged adult randomly peruses the MySpace pages of twenty-somethings in her spare time?

Pogo said...

Yes, my heavens, don't drink.

Now why exactly Jesus himself made wine is a concern. What was it meant for, since clearly JC would not condone alcohol ingestion which is Unclean, a Mean Habit, and Setting a Bad Example?

Christ, if you're going to drink, certainly not in the Bible. And Jesus, my man, I love you, but try to be above reproach, and then you can throw all the stones you like.

You know, there's a great big difference between "drinking" and being a "drunk."

Blithering Misogynist Idiot demonstrates that difference with every post.

Amen. Jesus was such a hypocritical, judgmental bastard of divine proportions. People rarely ever call him on it.

[Thank God I am indoors and it doesn't look like there is any lightning forming.]

Meade said...

Uh oh, Joe R, now you've done it - I feel a song parody coming on, something from Cat Islam's "Father and Son"

let's see:

Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, hanging around and sticking my bluenose in mySpace pages...

But I'm, you know... happy.

Bissage said...

What? The former is an ambitransitive verb while the latter is the truncated form of a noun?

You might want to work on your parallelism.

Remember, dave™©, you're a mean-spirited snob of a conservative who hates people who work in fast-food restaurants because they're inferior.

Get it right.

During my southern baptist days, I was never able to figure out what was up with creating wine at Cana--fortunately, the good deacons explained that "wine" was an inacurate translation of Welch's grape juice from Aramaic to Greek. Who knew. Speaking of southern baptists, why do you always invite two SBs to go fishing with you? Ans: If you only invite one, he will drink all your beer.

Roger said...

Boy: trademark dave has that blithering misogynist idiot thing down, doesnt he? what a great thinker.

Maxine Weiss said...

Someone has to supervise those children.

Apparently their Mother is doing other things....

Bissage, stop. Please. You're killing me.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Meade: Isn't that special!? Can you please do the Church Lady dance? And don't engorge those bulbous naughty parts, either.

Meade said...

Ruth Anne, my heart, you know there is nothing that pleases me more than pleasing you. However, I'm afraid this is the best I can do to meet your present needs. I do hope you enjoy.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Meade: Hilarious and new-to-me. Best line? I feel your revulsion.
