NPR lists the crimes committed in a teen comedy, but fails to relate it to Fight Club.

How does it fail to relate it to Fight Club? All those movies were teen comedies...Fight Club was NOT a "teen comedy". Was anybody in FC even a teen?

Epic fail.

I swear, if you stuck a lump of coal in your fist in two weeks you'd have a diamond.

The first rule of taking Dad's Ferrari out for a joyride is you do not talk about taking Dad's Ferrari out for a joyride.

Thats because of my Shaolin training. What's more interesting is that if YOU put a lump of coal in YOUR ass, your ass would be cleaner. Thats it.

All that innovative storytelling, top notch production and creative use of the medium that Ira Glass does on This American Life?

It's all happening in Carl Kasell's mind.

Zalgo works on every OS in my house, as long as it's viewed in firefox. That's a lot of OSes and a lot of firefoxes.

Epic fail.

The other day I was digging through my favorites, and I found this: The Fail Blog, which psmealey posted on January 29, 2008.

No wonder the "fail" meme seems so stale and irritating; It's at least a year and a half old, and in internet time that might as well be an eon.

Besides everyone who is me knows that the new hotness is to phrase it as such:

"Epic Flailure"

May I remind you that the first rule of Fight Club is that you do not talk about fight club and the the second rule of Fight Club is that you do not talk about fight club.
And you certainly don't MetaTalk about fight club.
