Clarification for the Extremely Stupid

We at Bowling in the Dark are aware that, thanks to the nuances of tone of voice, body language, and facial expressions, concepts like irony (which we can't describe, but can occasionally recognize when we see it) and sarcasm are much easier to spot in the spoken word than in the written word, especially with writers of somewhat limited ability (such as ourselves). So while we like to think that our attitude in the preceding post is fairly obvious, we’re willing to admit that we may be wrong on this point. It’s very possible that we’re not skilled enough to have pulled this off successfully, and it’s also possible that our readers—assuming we ever have any—may well be stupid, and in need of more direct and comprehensible communication than we've provided. So here, for the record, is our direct statement on the matter:

Everything in the previous post—with the exception of the description of Meghan McCain’s bust as “impressive”—is complete bullshit.

Thank you. We now return you to your regularly-scheduled blog.
