    I now know that I would rather read something by Mark Madden than Bonnie Erbe (crossthreading), who I had never heard of until today.

    They would make the perfect odd couple.

    Dear Bonnie:

    The tricky thing about attempting to be clever and pithy is when you fail, you just sound like a pathetic shrew.

    Those folks who got laid off by the NFL aren't 'macho, meat-headed, tobacco-spitting men.' They're hard-working, professionals with families and educations and lives, people who take great pride in the careers they've built. As a matter of fact, many of them work in media, just like you.

    You don't like the NFL, don't watch. You need cerebral stimulation that doesn't involve a ball, read a fucking book. Maybe you can find one that explains why decent people don't celebrate the unemployment of others.

    Dear Bonnie:

    I'll be sure to write and mock you when you get laid off too.

    Great blog. Can I get the RSS feed siphoned directly into my toilet?

    Why do websites even publish dope like this? I guess such is the price of free speech.

    Dear Bonnie,

    When you get cut from your job, would be you be offended if others danced on your professional grave?

    Yes, people losing their jobs is always good for a guffaw.

    Funny because it was so ridiculous. This woman is bat-shit crazy. I'm not laughing at anyone who loses their job.
