This one is a minor thing, but too funny to pass up. Over at BJ’s “Free Us Now” blog* a bedeviled PUMA left this hilarious nugget of dumb.
FreeMeNow, why is my email listed in the Leave a Reply area? I gave it when I commented on one of BJ Kling’s posts only because it was required. Is it visable to everyone who comes to this site? If so, would you please remove it?
I’m sorry, but I’m pretty dumb about how these blog sites work; it’s just that I prefer to keep my email private. I’m sorry if it actually is and I have misunderstood. I don’t mean to offend. Thanks for listening.
It took me about two seconds to realize that this paragon of PUMA must have left a comment on a wordpress blog before, with cookies enabled, and so upon loading the page her email address was already in the “email” comment field.
So this genius, who is admittedly “pretty dumb with how these blog sites work” thinks this is how everybody viewing the page finds it, with her email address on display.
I’m sorry, I realize that the Granny Brigade of the PUMA army didn’t grow up with computers, but it is two-thousand-fucking-nine. That’s almost as stupid as blaming Obama for not signing a law that hasn’t been sent to him by the congress. Almost.
*(I don’t actually consider Betty Jean fair game for mockery anymore since she is suffering quite a bit of family hardship that could almost excuse her behavior online. She really needs to get off the blog and realize that the PUMA “support” is driving her mad, but I’m leaving that whole thing alone.)
