Film critic writes a book about snark — called (duh!) "Snark" — and there's nothing to do about it, except...

... snark.
First [David Denby] references one of [Wonkette's] male associate editor’s posts about Chelsea Clinton and suggests that the “young women” who wrote it must have some catty jealousy issues, with their vaginas. Then he writes that we made fun of Ted Kennedy on the day of his brain tumor surgery, citing a post about something else entirely that was written seven months before Kennedy even got cancer. Damn those bloggers, always trying to ruin other peoples’ reputations with false information!
Snort.

Wonkette hasn't been any good since wonkette left.

i think it's a running snark somewhere that even though Ms. Cox left and despite their protestations of being male, wonkette is still written by buttsex obsessed women.

"... who wrote it must have some catty jealousy issues, with their vaginas."

Trust me. Male writers at Wonkette do have jealousy issues with their vagina's.

Cox isn't that interested in sex, actually, according to her in an Imus interview.

It was just good writing.

The joke being that serious DC is reduced to a single sex act, something DC deserves.

She was pretty good natured about it and evenhanded, unlike the current crop.

In accordance with the Peter Principle, she's moved on to something she isn't much good at, and underlings have moved up to incompetently fill her old job.

I have to tell you that there is nothing worse than catty, jealous vaginas. I mean, they conspire against each other in ways one cannot imagine and sometimes all they end up is being snarky to one another which I find to be just rude.

I have nothing to contribute to this conversation for on this subject I am bereft. So if you do not mind, instead I'll show you a pop-up card I made just now that was inspired by Ann Althouse's photography.

This took three tries to work out. The zig-zag was a fail. Along the way I learned something really neat that I did not use here but will come in handy somewhere down the line. And that new knowledge sent a thrill up my leg and the tingling sensation settled in my femur right where it bends into my hip, and then I realized, no, that's one of the pins they put in there, now get up and walk around.

Dear Chip,
Another masterpiece.

Bissage said...

Way cool, Chip.

(No snark.)

AllenS said...

Totally cool, Chip. Could you do another, but instead of mushrooms, could you use vaginas instead?

Very nice Chip.
