You’re trying too hard

To quote 12 Simple Steps For Effective Websites

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.

Edward Lear must have had some precognition about what was in store for us all with the development of the internet when he wrote this nonsensical poem.

Seriously, at some stage you have to wonder what the fuck these people are thinking.

Just because you’ve noticed that whenever you read the New York Times opinion pieces they quote Herodotus and deftly interweave humour with pathos doesn’t mean you have to start every mental excretion with some tenious attempt at being well read.

    Since this is a spelling mistake surely I’m not trying hard enough. ;-) Then again, it’s not that I don’t care, it’s more that I know if I make any mistakes you’re sure to comment on them.

    Yhl, hand.

    I’ll never understand you kids…
