  1. You do know The Onion is satire, right?

          I've read of them here on CH but gratefully haven't run across any, that I know of anyway, IRL.

              Well, you know here on the Left Coast, we sometimes march to the beat of a different drummer :)

            Indeed we do; sadly, I worked with a couple of 'em.

            Some of these "experts" on other people's lives have been spotted in the wild, muttering their opinions in checkout lines.

              Those "experts" should be trapped and relocated to Chernobyl.

                I had the misfortune to be seated next to a man who espoused these ideas last Thanksgiving. Had to excuse myself early from dinner to avoid smacking him upside the head. These people are toxic. It's possible to discuss how food stamp money should be spent without getting nasty and judgmental.

            1. That is hilarious. Man have we seen most of that right here on CH.

                The Onion sends an e-mail of selected stories every Thursday - good fun.

              2. Early in the morning when I'm bleary eyed and dressing for work, my wife has the title for "what on earth would motivate someone to go out in public like that."

                My answer - "I'm a nerd. I'm allowed to dress like this." :-)
