can we all just agree that sometimes, the best way to respond to a potentially emotionally volitile, politically charged, somewhat nuanced situation

of slight national import is to just post a profanity-laden instant message transcript?

yeah, i totally did that.

me: "o.m.f'ing.g. do you know what day this was?"

brother bear: "sorry, i always forget that signing out of gmail closes google talk. anyway, i was going to say 'the day after the day that the freeway melted?'"

me: "no, that was yesterday [sic] (btw wtf!?!) today was may day. i.e. 'thank you labor movement for working so damn hard and often giving your lives so that children don't have to work 14 hour days 7 days a week in mills day'. and also let's fix immigration day (¡viva la causa!) BUT...check this shit out: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/04/20070430-3.html"

bb: "that's the biggest load of bullshit eeeeeeeeVAR."

me: "shut up, freedomhatertraitorsadddamosamaobamalovertroopmurdererer!!eleventy-one!"

bb: "if people observed that day the way it's described in the press release then michigan would be annexing wisconsin all uber-militia style."

me: "or fucking ALL OF CANADIA!!!"

bb: "well, yeah, that, too."

me: "those polite frozen freaks have been obstructing our path to alaska for TOO FUCKING LONG!!!"

bb: "dude, that sentence had a comma between every word! heh heh heh."

me: "it was poetry in motion. grammatical poetry."


[5/2: fixed. high five to brother bear, bruise photographer, nerve damage speculation expert, and proofreader.]
