An anonymous commenter on my friend Ubermilf's blog suggested her next post be about how "pencils are good to write with."
First of all, ouch. Mr. or Ms. Anonymous is going to poke out an eye with that rapier wit. Also, since Ubie responded by calling him/her a pussy, I surmised it would be up to me to answer the call for a pencil post.
Yes, I concur, "pencils are good to write with"; even when ending a sentence in a preposition. They come in especially handy when writing the obituary of anonymous negative commenters. With the pencil's convenient built-in eraser, you can make sure the obit is easy to read with nice small words so his/her semi-retarded and wholly retarded friends and family don't accidentally pay their respects at the wrong pauper's grave.
Then Ubie did a post about horrid Country and Western clothes and I immediately thought about country music legend and leisure suit enthusiast Conway Twitty.
Okay, quick poll: Which Conway Twitty do you prefer?
Young Hair Helmet Conway...
Older Man-Perm Conway?
You decide. It's too close to call as far as I'm concerned.
