Not Just A Good Idea…


…It’s The Law

It was not my intention, but I like the way it sounds: “the law of the predictable comment“. My little verse, referred to as canon. Well, internet canon.

I approve.

In fact, I encourage one and all to police comment threads for similar malcontents, ne’er-do-wells, and trolls, and to slap their wrists with “the law of the predictable comment”. You know you’ve seen them everywhere–now you have a response!

(Ok, in truth, I’m just envious that my pal Kylie has her own well-deserved Wikipedia page, and I probably never will, so I’m aiming for a bullet point in “internet rules”, well beneath Godwin and Poe…)

There are dozens of internet laws
Which police our rhetorical flaws
All I want is one more
So I beg and implore
Won’t you please lend your weight to my cause?
