Since I cannot dance

That hair-rising review
Contest Winner


Apologies to Tom, but the concept that a reviewer can write the most idiotic and insulting review imaginable, but the author cannot "defend the work" is a license for the pompous professors of pedantic poppycock to spew their spastic spurts of spurious sputum all over said work. Worse though, is that if one dares to rebut their ridiculous rhetoric, they can (and do) pull out the victim card, and wave it madly about like a soccer referee who has just had his toes crunched because he was too stupid and slow to get out of the way.
I'm sure this is not within the spirit (or possibly even the rules) of this contest, but I feel better.
Much better, actually.
