AcmeShorts

So, anyway, there were 21 shorts in the guest queue. 21 fucking shorts! Was every guest angling to be a modern day Swift? The next Wilde? Did we all have something to say?

Like it was a big deal. Litcube would have some Doug story or something about pants. TREE would write some nonsense and then defend it like he knows he's a bad writer and thus claim his writing is ironic by definition. And The Rid would write another short about cum or his ex-girlfriend. Or both. What a dick.

The point being, we'd all live to see our lives validated by other people - and not ourselves - another day. Clods.

12/28/2004 The Rid: Wicked insightful.
12/28/2004 Litcube: How is this wicked insightful, Rid?
12/28/2004 Litcube: What point is trying to be made in the first paragraph? How does the second paragraph relate to the other two?
12/28/2004 Streifenbeuteldachs (2): I wasn't mentioned.
12/28/2004 The Rid: Litcube: Well, a good majority of your shorts are named "Pants."
12/28/2004 anonymous: I'm not trying to belittle anyone - except maybe TREE. I just fired this off in five minutes after we all realized there were 8 million shorts in the guest queue. And The Rid writes a lot of stories about cum, Litcube has a lot of stories named "Pants" and TREE, well, whatever.
12/28/2004 Litcube: Rid, I'm aware, and I have no idea why you said that. I'm also aware, Author, that you're not trying to belittle anyone (except maybe TREE), but I'm still not quite sure what point you're trying to get across here, which is totally cool because, really, we're not who you're trying to impress.
12/28/2004 anonymous: Litcube, I appreciate the understanding. This short was kind of a jokey response to the message boards. I seem to recall one of the full authors telling us to shut the fuck up. I can't recall who now, though.
12/28/2004 scoop: Maybe that author was on to something!
12/29/2004 The Rid (5): Since my vote doesn't count, I'm 5-ing my own short.
12/29/2004 TheBuyer: Hey Rid, do you want to know the secret about how to make those self-fives count? Seriously, it's pretty simple, I'm not setting you up for some hilarious one-star ambush. free web tracker
12/29/2004 The Rid: Hmm...okay, Buyer, I'll bite.
12/29/2004 TheBuyer: Get someone to do it for you by writing a funny short that is complete, worth reading, and short. This time, you were one in three.
12/29/2004 The Rid: Dude, that hurt.
12/30/2004 TheBuyer: I really can be a complete asshole sometimes, but I promise to try not to follow your comments around heckling them.
