You Know You've Hit It Big When Shouts & Murmurs Is Actually Funny

Well, not "funny" in terms of ha-ha funny. More "funny" like, I-ate-a-pint-of-day-old-jello-and-I-feel-funny funny. Shouts & Murmurs is never ha-ha funny, but at least they're on the right track here. Dan, my official funny friend, I charge you to rewrite this article and make it ha-ha funny. Go!

Thanks to Read Roger for the link.

That Shouts & Murmurs bugged the crap out of me. There must be a way to make it funny...please, someone!

God, I did love that. And the line about feisty Katey Karmody's nipples feeling like muskets reminds me of my favorite line from an Ann Rinaldi colonial bodice-ripper: "My heart felt like a cold meat-cake inside me."

And, while I'm still over-caffeinated, feisty reminds me of my favorite mispelling from a book-jacket blurb: "I love this heroine. She's so fiesty!--Norma Klein." Party on.

I am now going to write a second blog entitled "Cold Meat-Cake" which will assess the relative value of bodice-rippers.

I know you love him, darling. It's cool I don't, right? I mean, Marci X, man. Marci X!
