Shorter Chomsky Thrash

Dismayed at D-squared’s removal of his Shorten Den Beste post that finally provoked a response from the man’s reader-fans, The Poor Man offered a series of amusing Shorters, nailing himself in the process. The Chomsky one (“Shorter Noam Chomsky: Whatever someone said recently is pretty rich, considering East Timor”), which I thought was one of the funnier, drier ones, yielded the inevitable thrash in the comments area.

If e-mail weren’t private, I’d love to hear more of Northrup’s “weird e-mail” exchange with Den Beste.
