Althouse, can I tell you how much you rock? You not only managed to snag a fellow who is wicked hot, but he is just clever as hell.

knox said...

LMAO!

I don't even want to speculate about the relevance of the Bush doctrine in this context.

But I do have a feeling that the answer depends on what the definition of "is" is.

Hoosier Daddy said...

I actually heard Titus squeal from that bitch slap. I bet he even lost control and dropped a loaf.

Well played Meade.

garage mahal said...

So Meade got shot down. Heh. So Meade when is your ball and chain going to let go out boozing on the town w/ garage?

Chase said...

Confused but amused.

Joe M. said...

hahahaha.

Roger said...

Classic

goesh said...

- laff, laff, I am laffing out loud

mcg said...

That's gonna leave a mark.

DADvocate said...

LOL - can't figure out who's luckiest, Ann or Meade.

Tom Jones' Prison Beeyatch said...

Best. Comment. Ever.

Ann,

If things between you and Meade don't work out, send him my way. I'll switch teams for him.

PatCA said...

Touche, Meade!

You picked a good one, Ann.

Once again gm redefines the upper limits of stupid.

Props to Meade for a succinct and deadly comeback. Well played sir.

Lem said...

Wow.
Meade hit one out.

SteveR said...

Need some ointment for that burn?

rhhardin said...

Titus comes off okay too.

mcg said...

Aww, relax Paul, I thought GM's comment was pretty funny.

William said...

Props to Meade for a skillful stutter step. Nonetheless I remain convinced that a law professor in late middle age is having a better sex life than me. It's all very depressing. My only consolation is that, taken on the whole, I have had a more successful sex life than David Carradine, and he was a big movie star.

Skeptical said...

Whew. Before I read Meade's actual comeback, I was expecting something along the lines of "The Aristocrats."

Hazy Dave said...

Nice one, Meade. Gonna try to remember that, should I accidentally find myself in a discussion of the sanctity of gay marriage or whatever that thing's really all about.

Juris Dentist said...

Enjoy it while you can, Larry!

It's only a matter of time until you are Ex No. 2.

MadisonMan said...

I think you know Meade's password and posted the reply as him.

Well, it could happen.

Bissage said...

It should be noted for the record that Meade’s comeback was completely playful and well-intended and that it in no way gives titus an excuse to back out of his date with Althouse!

veni vidi vici said...

No wonder you're with him; he's got a quick sharp wit, that one!

Meade said...

Ha! Funny to make a separate post out of this.

I just hope Titus doesn't stand you up again. That could hurt your feelings.

Fred4Pres said...

That answer was so good, Titus did not even respond!

You struck Titus speechless!

I did not think that was possible.

Palladian said...

"I just hope Titus doesn't stand you up again. That could hurt your feelings."

Yes, and prevent her from learning just how uninteresting a person he actually is.

An Edjamikated Redneck said...

Excellent riposte Mr. Meade!

As long as Ms. Althouse is not teh kind of conservative women who does NOT believe in sex after marriage, y'all should be okay!

knox said...

I will be shocked if titus shows.

Palladian said...

Fictional characters are very difficult to dine with.

"Fictional characters are very difficult to dine with."

Unlike the imaginary friends we might have had as a kid, for each on-line fictional character, there's someone typing their heart out who I am sure would make a worthy dinner companion, Palladian.

Althouse can attest that I'm a perfectly nice, non-fictional person with whom I've dined several times.

Ann Althouse said...

"Althouse can attest that I'm a perfectly nice, non-fictional person with whom I've dined several times."

Why I should think that you've dined with yourself thousands of times!

And, yes, you are a very nice person and nonfictional. We've had dinner together several times... and we've gone shopping.

Palladian said...

"Why I should think that you've dined with yourself thousands of times!"

I've never dined with myself. I always dine alone.

"And, yes, you are a very nice person and nonfictional. We've had dinner together several times... and we've gone shopping."

When are you and Meade coming over for dinner?

Penny said...

"When are you and Meade coming over for dinner?"

Obviously not tonight. They are still waiting on Titus.

peter hoh said...

Titus: titus?

Palladian said...

"Obviously not tonight. They are still waiting on Titus."

Unlike Titus, I can cook.

knox said...

Fictional characters are very difficult to dine with.

mmmm.... I sort of assume titus is an extremely, EXTREMELY exaggerated version of a more normal person, who just might actually "show up." But I do think it's pretty unlikely.

Penny said...

I like good cooks as well as hearty eaters.

Disappointing to have one without the other. Wouldn't you agree?

Fred4Pres said...

Titus will be almost everywhere, on July 10.

Mr. Forward said...

I've always assumed the on line Titus was the less flamboyant version.

Ann Althouse said...

Thanks for the invitation. We are planning our road trip mainly out west, but hope to get to NYC eventually.

(There's definitely another LA meetup in the offing.)
