Below is a reproduction of an actual interaction that occurred on the comment boards of my newspaper’s website. Not only does it epitomize the level of discourse that our paper’s readers engage in, it also occurred beneath an article that Roommate Aly wrote. It was for last week’s issue, which focused on the Santa Barbara music scene. That makes it even better.
Every time I think about this, I start laughing. That’s probably because I read the bottom comment — the “stinky Binky” one — in a quiet, high-pitched simpleton voice.
The weird thing is that I think they both have a point.
