Many years ago I owned a horse. The barn I kept him in had a tin roof. There is a minor amount of tin in a nickle. If I had a nickle every time I thought of how much that horse looked like Sarah Jessica Parker I would be rich.

noitsnot: TuteTibiImperes: That did come off as a weird stream combo of stream of consciousness writing combined with copious name dropping and deliberately floral prose, but it also had this gem:

FTFA: It appears as though the U.S. Post Office on East Gay Street in West Chester is constructed of Cockeysville marble

Maybe it's juvenile, but I giggled about that.

I'm at the corner of Gay St and MLK - I have no idea what to expect


You should try going in Gay and coming out High.

If you saw the movie "The Exorcist" you will note that it starts with an archeologic dig in Mosul, Iraq. And the curse of the Pazuza excavated from there hits the girl, named "Reagan". A name that surely represents America a decade and a three quarters before St. Ronnie's ascension. In the movie, Father Karras, who looks just like John Kerry, fails to rescue Reagan from the curse of Iraq. Just like John Kerry failed to stop the ongoing curse that Iraq was causing America 3 decades after the movie came out.

/not threadjacking, just writing in TFAs style though I'm serious.

We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere - like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em.  Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.
 
Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Marcus Aurelius: theorellior: Someone's trying to be the local Dave Barry.

 
Oddly enough, this is the same newspaper where Dave Barry got his start.
 
Wow. So it is.
 
A key difference being that Mr. Rellahan's career will likely stall at that same paper, rather than explode beautifully like a beached Oregonian sperm whale.

Perhaps Cockeysville marble can stop the traffic

I didn't get any further.  Must rush off and corner the Cockeysville marble market before the next big DDoS attack!

Maybe I'm retarded, but I didn't think of that joke until you pointed it out. (Then again I'm used to the name Cockeysville since I was just there yesterday.)

So now for my rambling inane DC connection story: I lived in an apartment years ago in a warehouse attic. A warehouse that used to be the foundry for some kind of bronze pieces to the columns which hold up the DC Capitol building. Someone with access to the basement claimed there were even large bronze pieces laying around in the basement that could've been interesting but I never went down there.

Anyway they're slag now after the fire that destroyed that whole area.

I had no problems reading it just now.

If that's what TFA author's exposition looks like, I'd love to see his twitter feed.

FTA: mention of Cockeysville marble might actually get them to buy a beer

Or get you fired for sexual harassment.
