A writing lesson

January 31, 2009


If this is a fake, as I first assumed it was, it is a very clever one. It’s the postscript that makes me believe that, yes, Mom wrote this.

If it is fake, then that’s a niiiice piece of writing. (Ooh! And design!)

To Scientologists, Nancy Cartwright is the gift that keeps on giving

January 29, 2009


Scientologist Nancy Cartwright is using Bart’s voice to spread the word. Cartwright once gave the ‘Church’ ten million dollars, which automatically made her a Grand Wizard or something, and now she’s doing a talk where she explains why everyone else should pay their way to the top of the Pyramid of Creepy, Bullying Arseholes.

I remember once seeing her being asked about ‘King Of The Hill’ and she just shrugged and said “I don’t watch it”, and I thought “Wow, Bart’s a bit of a prick.” This audio clip doesn’t exactly blow that theory apart.

(Thanks, Emmett)
