"This guy just hasn't jumped the shark, he's jumped it, pried open its cloaca, and climbed inside."
-- "Anonymous," commenting on David BrooksAnd you see where the brilliance lies: cloaca.
If anyone can cite an occasion when that word has been used with more brutal effect, I'd like to see it. What amazes me is that a writer capable of such first-class invective should be willing to post it as an anonymous blog commenter. A tip of the hat, sir!
Wait a minute . . . that style seems familiar. Did I just get an anonymous comment from Dennis Miller?
