Escaped Comment


Just a warning: I’m hearing reports of an escaped comment.  Apparently, it was first made on Making Light in response to an utterly innocuous post, but was then quoted out of context on Scalzi’s Whatever, after which it’s been making its way through the internet.  After a brief appearance on Twitter, it now seems to be hiding on Facebook.  Livejournal users are being asked to stay alert.  No reliable description of the comment is available.  It has been variously described as, “insightful,” “topical,” “troll-like,” “insane,” “laugh-out-loud funny,” “Not Funny,” and, “about what you’d expect given the source.”

Authorities would not comment on reports that a trap is being set for it on Boing-Boing.  It is strongly recommended that, if you see the comment, you make no reply unless you have something new to add.  More on this as it develops.

I play the drum.


  1. skzb

    I see what you did there.

  2. If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.

  3. I would also describe the comment as “meta”.

  4. So what you’re saying is, be on the lookout for Hitler?

  5. I think it’s clear that whoever does actually find this post will discover a very subtle but important statement about the contrast between implicit Trotskyite socialism and a more elucidated Hegelian post-capitalist doctrine.

  6. Or a good Hungarian recipe.

  7. I saw one roaming around Facebook, but I would describe it as “ham-handed,” so it’s probably not the same one.

  8. Well, I am heading south in the Black Sea, en route from Bulgaria, and can confirm the total absence of escaped skzb comments in these regions.

    On the other hand, every guide between here and Antilya has commented on the sack of Constantinople by the Fourth Crusade, which took place 810 years ago…
