Andrew Northrup Is an International Treasure

Andrew Northrup is an international treasure, or I am very easily amused, or both:

The Poor Man: Oh, Dear:

Shorter Camille Paglia - I believe that Madonna is the most original philosopher of the millennium, for reasons so self-consciously contrarian that I must surely be the Smartest Girl In The Whole Wide World. My obsessive desire to draw attention to myself and approvingly recite my resume apropos of nothing speaks volumes about my screwed-up psychology, much like the many volumes of Aristotle which I have read in the original Greek.

Shorter Noam Chomsky - Whatever someone said recently is pretty rich, considering East Timor.

Shorter The Nation - If the inspiring story of a few dozen douche bags pointing out that there is no difference between anyone to the right of late period Mao Tse-Tung doesn't totally get your chub on, get up against the wall.

Shorter National Review - We are in danger of letting another priceless opportunity to use our tactical nuclear weapons pass us by, largely due to the corrupting influence of gays, women, and Muslims on our precious bodily fluids.

was this funny?

"Shorter Brit Hume - I'm a smug fuck with a stupid name, and in a just world I would be employed in a travelling carnival, where people could whip softballs at my Frankenstein melon head for a quarter."

Shorter Will Allen: Ad hominen this, ad hominen that. Ad hominen you, ad hominen me. Ad hominetc.
