But sometimes you just have to say "F^*k it."
Today's QotD is a comment by the aforementioned Billy Beck left at the blog The Trooper's Gal in response to a less than totally admiring comment addressed at him. Here's Beck's reply, in its entirety:
Rollory: you can resign yourself to life among inferior animals that look like human beings, but I will not.Wow. ". . . inferior animals that look like human beings." Isn't there a single word for that? Unter-something . . . ?
I know that humans exist.
Good to know where you stand in Beck's taxonomy, I guess. "Overweening misanthropy" illustrated.
(Oh, yes - Beck's threatened retribution over this post, too. They're his words. In context. He can choke on them. Far be it from me to expect anything approaching a retraction.)
UPDATE 6/14: No retraction. The drama continues.
UPDATE II: OK, I was wrong. Apology tendered.
