  1. The turtle quote was a nice touch.

  2. As a regular commenter here I'd like to second that: thank you all of you for not being dicks. So I'm sure you'll understand if I don't put my pants back on just yet.

  3. Wait, were we supposed to be wearing pants all this time??

  4. I'm just thinking about all my painful experiences working with asshole customers in the past, and I only have one question:

    How do I get a job working for BoingBoing?

    Okay, make that two questions:

    Would I have to wear pants?

  5. I could do this job!! Let me role play as an application to be your servant-ant-man.

    A: I can't believe you publish this clickhole type of article on your tubes! I am giving you one more chance before I defect to buzzfudd forever. This is serious!

    B: (this is me). I appreciate your attention to detail, but can I tell you a secret?

    A: okay, sure

    B: well, it is embarrassing to admit, but we wrote this clickhole-esque article... So we could engage with you specifically!

    See, we knew you were out there, but we didn't know how to contact you!

    A: really...?

    B: yes, really (mines Big Data in the background) Jeff Jeffty Jeff. But here is what we really need from you.

    A: okay, I'm listening

    B: well, we don't really know which articles are good. So can you distribute them to your friends, talk about them extensively on twitter, and give likes to little ol us?

    A: I... I guess I can do that.

    B: thank you Jeff Jeffty Jeff, your participation is our only hope.

    Do I get the job!?
