"Join the party, throw in more jokes, more humourous euphemisms. Bitch a good bitch even if you're the only one who is going along with it. That's fine. It doesn't mean that you have to have the vitriolic spigot flowing endlessly."
I saw this as an invitation to a bitcher to be more social to try and lessen the isolation this bitcher is both subjected to and subjects herself to. It's not too hard to see it refers to KAY. This is not a big community. The majority of bitchers chat and complain and crack jokes amongst each other. But there is a dichotomy. There's the couple idiots who obessively hate Kay. They should lighten up and joke around more. Then there's Kay who likewise could lighten up a bit and become part of the community if she let herself. But she doesn't.
WHY AM I BOTHERING WITH THIS? Because, dear bitchers, I am leaving this post today. Onto greener pastures. Some other person will be "community editor" here and will manage the site. And I hope, like this bitcher said, that the weird split on this site is healed. However, since this is a BITCH site, I don't really expect much harmony. Good luck and good bitching.
Well, if you sell most of your downtown land to developers with plans for buildings that are totally out to lunch and unfeasible , this is what you get. A bunch of landowners who are sitting on their properties and building plans, starving downtown. Can downtown really support 5-10 more 20+ storey buildings? Like the Fares plan we wrote about in Dartmouth this week, the chances these buildings will ever get built is slim - we don't have enough money in this city or province to make it happen. Modest proposals are the only solution in NS in general and downtown in particular.
The first rule of the Shrike club is....
"...why not have a "winning" bitch of the week to aspire to?" I LIKE. What would you win? Some grapes? Remind me about the puppet bitch...
No offense taken. I agree there is an element of subjectivity here when it comes to repetition. The countless Metro Transit bitches -- I figure it keeps em honest. The traffic stuff is boring and if there have been too many in one day, I skip some. Events like when winter parking ban starts, and the Olympics are repetitive, but I figure it's just for a short time. Trash is usually creepy misogynistic / racist rants. Or, overly "clever" ones where someone is obviously trying out some comedy. Sham bitches are funny now and again, but too many kinda diltutes the rage, don't you think?
Maybe you, like the proverbial British press, think you're being really funny and witty, but really you're jokes are tired and boring. I publish 90% or more of the bitches sent in. The rest are really either TOTALLY repetitive, too specific for LTWWB or utter trash.
