There's another born every minute

Recently, I got into a minor dust-up with someone who had absolutely NO CLUE about “satire.” This genius took my piece about a few petty idiots targeting Muslims and completely, utterly, fully missed the point. The amazing part was he was perceptive enough to spot a couple of typos, but could not sustain his comprehension long enough to hold more than a word or two in his brain at a time.

As some small consolation, I did manage to come up with my new favorite line: “I have led a horse’s ass to water, but I’ll be damned how I can make him drink without an enema kit. And there’s only so far I’ll go.”

But just when I think I’ve found the most clueless person in the known universe, I stumble across this article, where the author… oh, just go and read it for yourself, you would not believe me if I told you. I wouldn’t bother to comment, though — the total is up to almost 800, and I spotted a familiar name or two in there…
