The Internet Did It

Link To Today’s Idiocy

Yes, it was The Internet, the very same internet that saved Cindy’s flagging career. Everything used to be sort of almost halfway decent, then These Kids Today came along with their “world wide web” and the gizmos and such and yadda yadda yadda, it’s all mostly bullshit now. Sort of like how FW itself used to be halfway decent, then Lisa got wasted at a party and yadda yadda yadda everyone became a wry cynical asshole…if they managed to survive at all.

Everyone knows why BatBrain hates the internet so much, it’s given his dozens of critics a medium with which they can band together and mock his feeble efforts in unison as opposed to having to sit down and pen a letter to the editor of their local newspaper, a letter no one was ever going to read anyhow. Well I say “hard cheese” to that, my good sir. As long as I have some sort of functional internet access this blog isn’t going anywhere until that final Sunday strip where they FINALLY plop Les’ casket into the cold frozen leaf-strewn earth. Bank on it.

    I remember that his sock puppet used to whine about being bullied because his faulty reasoning, slobbering and blind devotion to tiresome crap no one sane would possibly like and irritating habit of building up to something exciting we never see because he’s too dumb to think of what it would look like were given their right names. He’d be whining about letters to the editor in the old days.

    Funny thing for Cindy to say considering she is a featured blogger over on buddy blog.

    Someone should tell Batty about YouTube and how one can create their own show, and if successful, they may get picked up by traditional mass media outlets.

    “The internet allows any schnook in the world to disseminate smugness, mawkishness, lame jokes, and clumsy grammar across our culture. It allows anyone to live in a warm, infantilizing bath of comic-book nostalgia. Once, children, these things were the purview—the sacred space, some might call it—of only a few people, a tiny handful of the world’s most gifted newspaper cartoonists…”

    How does this pertain to having a career in media? Someone go get Lefty and the band to play Cindy off, please.

    I hate to be pedantic (oh who am I kidding? I live for this) but the generally accepted version of this saying goes “Believe Nothing You Hear, and Only One Half That You See” – there are variants of course but in no case does it say go half and half with the hearing and seeing.
    This took 2 minutes on the net to confirm.
    I can only guess that the Author unable to think of anything else to put in the strip left it as it stands.
    I’d make a comment about how the editor should have caught this but again who am I kidding?
