No Arguing With Assclowns On The Internet Day

Portland blogger Wacky Mommy (whom I happen to share a bed with) has declared every Wednesday to be No Arguing With Assclowns On The Internet Day (NAWACOTID). I think she conceived of it with me in mind, since she knows I like a good scrap. (Only I kinda forgot until just now.)

Anyway, here’s the deal. On Wednesdays, whenever some contrarian comes on your blog and tells you the sky isn’t blue, or babies don’t choke on chicken bones, or there’s no such thing as a free lunch and the gubmint just wants to take yer money, yada yada yada, you just say:

You’re right! Why didn’t I see this all along?

And you go about your business.

So to everybody I might have accidentally argued with today on, say, Amanda Fritz’s blog, this blog, my blog, my wife’s blog, or any place else I might have forgotten, I say this:

Please disregard anything I may have written today that could be perceived as disagreeing with you. What I meant to say was, “You’re right! Why didn’t I see this all along?

I feel better already. Happy NAWACOTID! (FYI, the pretty and contentious Wacky Mommy will be joining the ranks of Metroblogging Portland soon.)

    How ’bout “Not Being An Assclown On the Internet Day”? Oh, dangit – I think I just blew that concept. Never mind.

    That would be predicated on the ability of assclowns to self-identify.

    Remember: the assclown is always the one you’re arguing with.

    Well, except, maybe some bloggers should avoid saying ‘Why didn’t I see …,’ (silly or serious) comments the blogger has gagged or erased.

    However, what misspeaking comment writer extraordinarily renditioned away to never-never non gratis land, could possibly point out, in writing, the self-delusion of a blind blogger asking ‘Why’ writing can’t be seen?

    “It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said.”

    You’re right! Why didn’t I see that all along?
