Our First Hate-Mail

This blog has been in existence for more than a year now, and the combined energy of our lethargic band of bloggin' warriors has produced over 1000 posts of various crap, opinioned ramblings, and some things that I have found downright offensive.


It has taken this long for anyone to care enough about anything we've written to actually complain in email form to our communications nerve center, aka our email address (idislikeyourfavoriteteam@earthlink.net).


It strikes me oddly appropriate that the subject that so enraged our first hate-mail wtiter is an entry we wrote no less than 9 months ago, at least. Of course, the writer is furious with our thoughts on... Barbaro!

Let me quote from the email, that was sent with the simple descriptor subject line of "FUCKER"

You may be tempted to think this is a joke, but based on the sender's email address, I think, sadly, that this person is being entirely serious. Which also makes it funny. Bask in the nuttiness:

YOU FUCKHEAD!!! YOU ARE A WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT. IF YOU BROKE YOUR LEG I BET PPL WOULD BE HOPING THAT U GET BETTER. BARBARO WAS A LEADER FOR THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS INCLUDING MYSELF DUMBASS!! I HOPE THAT U BURN IN HELL!!!

Very few things undermine your argument that the subject of your complaint is too callous and unfeeling than name-calling, or casually hoping for an eternity of torment in the afterlife.

Barbaro was a leader of thousands of Americans? Thousands of human Americans? Correct me if I'm wrong, but following a racehorse would just mean running in circles for a half-mile or so.

Man, I wonder what kind of crazy-ass email Will got when he lobbed his shots at Barbaro's fans.

Still, we feel we've kind of arrived. We were blogger-boys before; now we are blogger-men. This is like our bar-mitzvah. L'chaim!

Barbaro fans are so fucking awesome.

I have misgivings that this hatemail is even verifiable, yet I respond with my heart-light.

As a confirmed non-moron, the hell I might burn in would be surrounded by people who write sentences such as: "IF YOU BROKE YOUR LEG I BET PPL WOULD BE HOPING THAT U GET BETTER."

Goddamn, reading that is like chugging wood sealant.

Since I don't believe in your illiterate, grammatically philistine and rationatically bovine God (in whose image you were created), I'm not worried about my place in your heaven.

Oddly, I think this relates to my Vick/child shock treatment post. Of all the offensive things we've said about people - we get hate mail for ragging on a horse. Idiocracy my friends, idiocracy,
