Gelatinous mass Roger Ailes has suspended from appearing on the Faux Noise Network anyone related to the 2012 Goat Rodeo election-night fiasco (which should be the entire network), but especially that toe-sucking fiend Dick Morris and Chimpy's so-called brain Turdblossom.

Damn liberal media! Denying Republicans their freedom of speech!

Oh, wait...

Dear god, Tengrain, please stop with the "Hey guys, remember that time when ... me neither." It ceased being cute after the 3rd time you used it. I genuinely like the news nuggets you dig up, but wrapping every freaking post inside a "Hey guys" "me neither" is just tedious. So much so that I usually skip posts containing it.

You dig up plenty of stuff thats interesting in its own right, so there's no need to keep beating us over the head with this formulaic crutch.

The problem is many-folded and it happens often enough that someone say, "who's X and why do I care?" If you look at earlier news briefs (even from this week), you'll find someone asking it, and The Renegades are amongst the best and the brightest, the absolute 1% of snarkers.

In my mind, when I write it, I hear Gilbert Gottfried's voice, so at least you don't have to suffer through that... until now.

Rgds,

Tengrain

PS - Point taken. I'll see if I can find another way to explain it without it being too professorial.

I, too, find the me neither construct tiresome. May I suggest a "Winston Smith remembers when..." might be better?
