Well, I mean, you would phrase it differently?"...for consuming woman's feline"?"...for digesting woman's pet"?I mean, at least he put "cat" and not, you know, something else.
Let's see, Ryan, perhaps the editor could have written,"...killing and eating woman's cat." I think that would have wrung the humor out of the whole thing.
Perhaps, but it was the phrase "eating woman's cat" that, I imagine, got your gears turning in the first place. I don't know if adding "killing" would have wrung what you call "humor" out of the headline. I saw that headline before you pointed it out, and I certainly didn't make that connection to begin with. I've seen worse.
You're right Ryan, I lack your finally tuned sensibilities.
No, no, don't be so hard on yourself, "Veblen". What you really lack is a sense for newsworthy stories, of which this is not one.What you DON'T lack, I will admit, is a remarkable pomposity; for example, anybody who thinks highly enough of themselves to hide their identity out of a delusion that the University would care enough to retaliate against a few pithy blog posts must be a real ass.Do you always unleash the same snark usually reserved for Spanier on readers who try to make an innocent joke? If so, I would recommend finding your own sense of humor before commenting on the lack of one by somebody else.
You know what Ryan, you are right; I shouldn't have engaged in a snarkfest over a trivial throw away post. You clearly read this blog fairly often, which is appreciated. I invite you to comment on my other more substantial posts. I don't guarantee that I won't push back were you to do so,in fact, I assure you that I almost certainly would. However, I would hope that an informed and honest debate would strengthen and refine my ideas without diminishing yours.As a gesture of my good faith, I'm adding your blog Happy Valley Cynic to my student blogroll. By the way, this invitation to comment extends to all of my readers.
