So, a little while ago there was this thread over at Shakesville, where standard mockery of a wingnut’s absurd hyperbole quickly devolved into a barrage of our own absurd hyperbole. Note that “quickly” here means “by the second comment.”
In the course of the thread, Jen said,
No fair. Scott’s got his hyperbole shield on. It’s like he wants to destroy us all with snappy comebacks while remaining immune himself. SCOTT MADIN IS THE EBOLA VIRUS OF THE INTERNET.
To which I responded, as anyone would, “I want that on a plaque.”
Reader, I did not have to wait long!
Llencelyn obliged shortly thereafter:
And I thought that was really pretty awesome.
But this was no stock plush Ebola virus, oh no! That, my friends, is not how the Brahmina rolls.
That’s right. It’s wearing a suit, and tie, and glasses, and a gray fedora.
*Probably not actually true.
