Mean Week, Brevity Style
October 27, 2010 § 7 Comments
It is “Mean Week” over at HTMLGiant, which means the blogger folks say mean and provocative things about other writers and other magazines and other blogs and everyone gets all snarky in the comments and insults the original blog author, and in this way, if we understand correctly, everyone gets a good chuckle and site stats go through the roof. Oh, the internet is such a wonderful place.
So, in order to increase our site stats, we here at the Brevity Blog are going to be way mean too, starting now:
1) Philip Lopate, you are too tall.
2) Lee Gutkind, lots of people don’t know how to pronounce your last name.
3) Robin Hemley, your first name is also the name of a bird.
4) Gay Talese … oh never mind.
