Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I feel your pain, Amos. ;-) Indeed, it is tragic when the frivolous and meaningless pursuit of a tiny number of individuals (2 or 3 of them perhaps?) is derailed by the frivolous and meaningless pursuit of another individual...but not to the result those former individuals had planned on! Tragic. Disturbing. Unsettling.
The chronically pretentious intellectual type usually reacts to such an unsettling event by churning out a great deal of verbose and floridly dramatic poetry to discharge his ruffled feelings, poetry so dramatic, in fact, that it would probably cause even William Shatner to blush. (or....maybe not?...not much can embarrass William Shatner)
But I digress. Let us return to the mad scribbler, the unsettled poet who delivers forth a flood of perfervid rhymes in which he bemoans the fact that a "monkey" has stolen his thunder. Note that he refuses to own up to his own authorship of those verses, but instead hides behind a fictional name, a fictional title, and a fictional publishing house! Well, that's about what we have come to expect of a man who cannot even distinguish a monkey from an ape. ;-D
You, sir, are a Jargonaut of the first ilk.
