Two-Thirds Loser... Matey

First, the Carnival of Satire is up, and I think, given how little satire was submitted this week, he's right to give it a break next week. Ringxiety was good, though, and Chainik Hocker's riff on a headline is fantastic.

Thanks for the recomendation! I feel touched, especially since they rejected the last contribution I made. Appearently it was "parody", not "satire", as though a high school dropout like myself can tell the difference.

Bah. Literary critics are the bane of every artist's existence.

I've been making a point of nominating good stuff to CoS for a while now.
