Free To Be Us and

Free To Be Us and Them

Perhaps you have noticed, dear reader, that hardly anyone is bothering to head to the office this week. As a result of the upcoming holidays, you, dear reader, are probably the only poor sod hunched over your desk in your miserable cubicle.

Accordingly, our humble “weblog”—humble as it is—hasn’t proved as popular this week as it has in weeks past. Now that manifold fans of “The Hatemonger’s Quarterly” are out shopping for last-minute Christmas gifts, very few of you are pouring over our most recent posts.

At first, dear reader, this caused us, the crack young staff of “The Hatemonger’s Quarterly,” a great deal of consternation. Isn’t it awful, we thought to ourselves, that our loyal readership has betrayed us? Wouldn’t this mean that we would have to come up with a more a propos adjective to describe our readership than “loyal”? It seemed so.

And then it collectively hit us: Now that so few of you are bothering to keep up with our humble musings, a great weight has been lifted from our collective chest. Well, figuratively, at least.

In short, dear reader, this pre-Christmas, pre-Kwanzaa downtime allows us an opportunity to write posts that aren’t that good. All this week, we can prove about as funny as the sit-com “Small Wonder” and pretty much no one will notice. We can offer posts that don’t have as many yuks as a Fidelity commercial, and all will be well with the world.

Frankly, dear reader, we, the crack young staff of “The Hatemonger’s Quarterly,” find this truly liberating. In fact, we find this so liberating that we aren’t even troubled by the fact that this mediocre post has a very poor ending.
