I was a huge Murphy Brown fan...I always wished I could come up with a bold, snappy response to people's stupid comments. Of course, she wasn't particularly nice to people at times...she didn't suffer fools gladly. But what I admired most was her speed. (Yes of course she wasn't a real person, but we all know people who have this ability.)
If you enjoy that kind of snappy retort, you need to read this clever e-mail exchange between a homophobic redneck and a blogger: "I have read your website and it is obvious that your a foggot." Yes, the writer makes some broad generalizations about working class, uneducated sorts (ever notice that the worst kind of insults hurled on the internet involve horrific grammar and spelling?)...but the foggot-name caller was asking for it. Again and again and again.
This one made me laugh out loud. And admire the writer's wit and way with words.
