Some time ago, I saw a personal on The Onion and blogged
about it. For some reason it ended up on the first page of search results for google when you search for the misspelled term "laditudinarians". After that, of course, idiots started trickling in, feeling that they had to strike a blow for like, equal rights for the stupid or whatever it is that idiots fight for. Here are some of their comments.
Ditto for how I got here.
But, this blogger doesn't even realize the "pretentious bitch" personal was all a joke in the first place. Jeez.

I have no idea what Sherlock here is referring to, so I shall attempt to cover all bases.
Possibility #1: The Onion Personals is a joke.
The Onion Personals is not satirical. It is an actual personal ads
section of The Onion.
Possibility #2: The author of that personal ad was joking.
Yeah? How would you know that unless you're *gulp* the author? Anyway, the joke, whatever it was, wasn't funny, which makes the author even stupider, now, doesn't it?
Whatever the case, I can't see how it being a joke (which I doubt) magically makes my post any less valid. Besides, my post was also a joke. So there.
What's more pretentious than her getting something wrong is you being proud you noticed it and publicizing it to losers like me who read things like this. Grow up.

What's more immature than me noticing someone getting something wrong and publicizing it to losers like you is losers like you who know that you're losers making comments on my blog about it and giving me the opportunity to lambast you for it instead of, you know, going out and doing stuff that makes yourselves less loser-like. Grow up (and wow, that was a whopper of a sentence, wasn't it? bwahahaha).
For the record, I didn't notice it. I just did exactly as the author said and looked the word up, something she should have done in the first place. I'm actually doing a public service by educating everyone about the correct spelling of the word. And yes, by Goddesses, I'm proud of it.
