Bonfire of the Vanities - Week 16

The Bonfire of the Vanities returns from a denial of service attack long enough to invite further fury upon it's hosting company. The motto this week is "DOS!." This weeks entries prove that some posts deserve to be the targets of scipt yielding terrorists. All of this weeks entries have been gladdy offered up to the raging inferno that is the Bonfire...

I'm fighting a real Denial Of Service attack on Hosting Matters, so this post is sort of inching to completion...

On with the attack on your senses...

Inviting Jihasist To Snuff Out Their Flames
  • Pete has the requisite Red Sox eulogy. Destiny Of Sox.

  • The King Of Fools show why we will always win the culture wars: Whoppers and Fries. Death To Saddam.

  • Blackfive details the DOS (Denial Of Series), Cub style.

  • Jim is pooping, alert the media. Details Of Shit.

  • The Bartender squezes out another turd, Michael Moore. Ditto On Shit.

  • Dave is caught in a rather compromising position. His co-workers evidently didn't fess up to pulling the alarm on purpose. Denial Of Shit

  • It is well documented that Susie has her days mixed up due to a "blue collar" job. Now she has her times mixed up as well. 10:00AM only feels like 8:00AM when you go to sleep at 2:00AM. Denial Of Sleep.

  • Jennifer has the "right stuff." She's not the Queen of Suck for nothing. Details Of Suck.

  • Bryan knows how to grab a readers attention and squeeze the pus puss out of it. Dangerous Orifice Scabs.
    (Permalink hosed - search page for "zit")

  • Heather is cat blogging. The cat's name is John Galt, not to be confused with Jane Galt. Details On Surgery.

  • John is not impressed with the agenda of the TV show Threat Matrix. It's not called The Religion Of Peace" for nothing. Dreaming Of Syndication.

  • Patterico invites readers to read comment threads in which Patterico is ridiculed as a virtual illiterate. Of course if he had comments at his site you could save a lot of time… Debate On Schwarzenegger.

  • Margi details her geekdom back to the 70's. It's pretty much over when your kids think you're a dork. Of course my day is coming in that regard. "OMG Dad, you had a blog? That's SOOOO LAME." Indeed. Denial Of Senility.

  • Some people write blogs to show off their powers of insight and analysis. Not Owen, in this post he shows off his amazing grasp of the obvious. Denial Of Service - Can't get to the post!

  • McGehee appears to be the culprit behind the new Slime Warner logo. They took one look at the blogoSFERICS logo signed him up on the spot. Detailing Original Stuff.

  • Harvey threw out some chum hoping to attract lefty comment trolls. He's not going to need a bigger boat. Democrats On Strike.

  • Brian attempts do a Frank J. like treatment of a Madeleine Albright story. He proves that Frank is a genius. I don't think that was his goal… It's a Bonfire classic. Don't Overextend Sarcasm.

  • Sean gets all hyped up about iTunes for Windows then figures out in won't run on Windows. Apple has always seemed to be terminally afraid of market share, so incompatibility with most versions of Windows for their Windows product line shouldn't be a surprise. Microsoft DOS based systems not welcome.

  • I offer up this post where I another blogger's bill is not paid. As Spathic says, "The tackiest post ever." Unfortunatly I have to agree... Details Of Service.

Bonus Post
The Bonfire would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the worst post of the week courtesy of Gregg Easterbrook. Calling out Michael Eisner as a money grubing Jew tends to get you removed from the Disney payrolls regardless of where you make the comment. Drama Over Sportswriter.

I will probably have comments on my site soon enough. Xrlq is going to help me move off Blog*Spot. Soon it will be much more easy and convenient to ridicule me.

And -- whoa! You are *quoting* Easterbrook as having called Eisner a "money-grubbing Jew"?? Did I miss that quote? Or are you following the Los Angeles Dog Trainer (aka Los Angeles Times) policy of placing characterizations within quotation-marks??

um...that's 'pus,' not 'puss.' you're talking about something different altogether.

Bryan, you're right - I'll correct the working.

Patterico, good point as well. I'm changing it to italics, which is what I meant to do in the first place, as he did not use those terms in that order anywhere. The word grubing is not used at all.
