Your Beat Is Nice

In case you're wondering, the below conversation is in reference to this post.

Dina: this comment thread going on. amazing
me: i know
Dina: LMAO
me: El Mao. El Meow
Dina: i also enjoy how he spells paedophile. oh, rocks in the head anonymous british guy, how you've brightened my day
me: seriously, i think there's a bunch of rabid john o'hurley fans out there who love dancing with the stars and DON'T love the inherent humor in one of the show's contestants choking to death his partner on live TV
Dina: LMAO, rock in the head. LMOA. i don't know why that makes me so happy
me: El-Mwah. i especially like the short amount of time it took for someone to accuse me of misogyny. really, it would have been just as funny to casually pass off the woman killing john o'hurley as being funny
Dina: indeed. fantastical.
me: do people really think i'm saying the violence itself is funny? do they not see how passing off the mock violence so casually and not being the focus of the post is what's really funny?
Dina: oh, drew. you clearly just don't understand real humor. murder is funny. you need to emphasize it more clearly for your readership. get those rocks out of your head and into the faces of strangers. that's the ticket
Even better: Since Dina and I had this conversation, an additional commenter who doesn't believe in commas actually referred to me as "buddy" and did so seriously. That's so cute!

Also, I did another image search and found this photo of the very same celebrity attempting to suck the life force out of an innocent infant king.

And all while an alarmed cow looks on, no less! Now bring it, you dead-eyed John O'Hurley fans. Which sin will you accuse me of endorsing now? Cannibalism? Soul-eating? Infanticide? Regicide? And why didn't anyone get upset when this same blog implied that the far-more-beloved America Ferrera of having committed crimes here in Santa Barbara?

    What's all the ruckus about? Did someone call my name?

    I, for one, am willing to stand up and admit that I find cannibalism to be pretty damned funny. Dancing with the Stars, however (with or without strangulation)... not funny.

    The accepted treatment for comment trolls is to ignore them; inviting them to leave pretty much guarantees that they'll be back.

    Oh, and as for explaining humor to people born without: forget about it. It's like trying to teach a pig to sing: it doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

    Keep up the good work. Don't let the naysayers get you down.

    Maybe you ought to look at the fact that you just are not funny or clevor instead of blaming the public who reads this drivel.

    Yes, Drew, it's your fault for not being clevor. The publik who reads this drivel is entirely blameless, even if they think it's drivel and keep reading it. Because you forced them to.


  4. Hi Drew, just give the signal, and the New York City Chapter of TSHFTDMFE! will mobilize against your enemies.

  6. You all are too good to me.

  7. Oh my god. I will never go a week without reading your blog again. This has just been too much to take in in one afternoon. I'm so glad that the internet allows you to be global, drew.

    I'm an O'Hurley fan who finds these entries absolutely hilarious. Then again, I suspect that we might share similar tastes in humour to begin with, irrespective of the O'Hurley factor.
