a head-to-head comparison between boing boing and mm.com

I’d been sitting here at my desk for about an hour, trying to craft a little post comparing the quality of the Small Wonder-themed comments left on this site a few months ago to those left on Boing Boing today, when it occurred to me that I’m an exhausted 40 year old man sacrificing sleep to scrape together a few witty lines about an irrelevant situation comedy about a girl robot for an unbelievably small audience of people that I do not know.

This, I think, is what they call a moment of clarity.

    If I was smarter, I would’ve done my thesis on the Rhetoric of Mark Maynard.

    Then, your small wonder wit would be my obsession.

    This is what it took to bring you back, OEC?

    Scientologists worship VICKI, the small girl robot from that show. They believe that L Ron Hubbard foretold of her coming in his short story Querston 5.

    It’s only a moment of clarity if it results in change, right? But your blog is sweet. What are you thinking of doing differently?

    Ol’ E Cross is back?! Awesome! He’s the best! Coming up with brilliant comments on Mark’s topics isn’t always easy. Nobody does it better.

    Take heart, Mark: Soon, you’ll be 41.

    Head to head, clearly you have the bigger head, Mark.
