  12. Jonathan Safran Foer

      I am doing something I hate for you. This is what it means to be in love.

  13. Jonathan Safran Foer

      Die in a fire.

  14. Jonathan Safran Foer

      Nicole told me not to do this, but I can’t contain myself. Frankly this [decision] comes as a shock. Didn’t we have a rapport building up? I mean this is hurtful, I liked going back and forth with you and then to just lay this on me, it’s just cruel. Go eat an uncircumcised hotdog filled with cheese

  15. Ethan

      Mmm, uncircumcised cheesy dog.

      I saw the trailer for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close last night and puked in my mouth a little bit.

  16. Ethan

      And yet.

      Dear Daniel Bailey,  
      I’m sorry I didn’t see your comment before replying to Molly Gaudry, above. You have first rights to the commenting on the finding of the humor in “h8ingonsaffy”. Please accept my sincerest apologies. From now on I will make a point of reading an entire comment thread (some call it a “blogicle”) before posting any comments. Or replies to comments. Or anything.  
      Sincerely yours,

      Why does “poeple” have the squiggly red underline but “acutally” doesn’t?

      emailing something which is not a “draft” of your writing vs. vegan zombies

      i dont know. i never figured that out, no matter how mny times i took a screenshot

  21. Daniel Bailey

      next time there will be fisticuffs. i don’t think there are rules for posting on htmlgiant as far as saying what someone else has already said. i feel like that happens in every thread many times. the internet is too huge for the amount of time that exists in a day. there is no reason to read everything. you just have to post what you feeeeeeeel.
