Finish this sentence: Mitt Romney makes me want to . . .
Drink an extra cup of coffee out of spite.

“Subprime” was just named 2007’s word of the year. What’s your prediction for word of the year in 2008?
I’m gonna go with “electability,” because it is a terrible word and also I am already sick of it.

What’s your go-to url for internet shenanigans?
I enjoy www.passiveaggressivenotes.com. But you probably won’t go there, even though I’ve made the effort to let you know about it. I suppose that’s fine, if that’s the kind of person you want to be. I myself choose to live my life differently. Signed, An Irritated Local Comedian.

Shins keyboardist Marty Crandall was recently arrested on charges of domestic violence, though the charges were dropped.

Uh, what? Oh, uh . . . Ho! Er, hi! I meant hi! I’m just calling to, you know . . . stuff. God, I sound so dumb. #. #. ###!! Why isn’t this working?!?! I just # # want to # # # re-record!! #! Dammit! # # # # # # #!!!<click>
