"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

I Respect My Comment Spam For Not Sucking Up To Me

I used to get comment spam that said things like "Dead on post!" or "Excellent point—I've bookmarked this site!" Then I'd get offended by the implication that I was so hungry for obsequious flattery that I wouldn't delete it.

So I'm pleased to say I just got spam (on the post "The Grand Re-Opening of") saying:

i have to say i disagree

All right! I like the idea of healthy debate, even if one side of the debate is non-human!

While I went ahead and deleted it anyway, I urge you to visit the good people at

The Best Dental Insurance Info

for all your Best Dental Insurance Info needs.

NOTE: The link doesn't seem to lead anywhere, but that is part of the eternal mystery that is comment spam.
