    The downside of DanO's departure

    Poor Redsland.

    Several years of material, no longer needed.

    The funny part about the whole thing was that he DIDN'T HAVE TO MAKE STUFF UP.

    Now, he REALLY has to embellish!

    Go get'em Redsland!

    Aw, thanks for the support, guys.

    Truly the news today causes a variety of effects, both physiological and psychosocial, but none more so than those with us now. Obviously the events of the day were precipitated by a litany of precursors, some in our control, and others less so. Still, as I look at the open yardage ahead, I know that other days will be like this one to one degree or another, but largely by happenstance rather than by design. Because let me be clear: a bucket is not a tree house, nor should it. With that I’ll take a few questions.

    Makes all the routine posts.

    That, and Staples Corp. and Office Max Inc. were downgraded to "sell" upon release of the news, citing projected drop-offs in binder sales.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I've read this thing at least a dozen times, and it just keeps getting funnier.

    Redsland, you are a freakin' genius. I bow to your superior intellect.

    I'd almost vote this thread as an archive, if it wasn't so darn short.

    Quality over quantity. Brilliant!

    No kidding. He's been cracking me up with this routine for a long time now, but this... this was off the charts hilarious.
