Snappy, Meet Jeff Lebowski.

I'm glad someone's still got the energy to link to A-list silliness, mainly because I've given up. The most savage attack is deflected with an almost majestic obliviousness.

Snappy must be from the East Coast, where people expect to eventually get a reaction from repeated provocations, even if it's just a mean put-down and disinvitation to all the best parties. Our more infuriating West Coast approach involves smiling benignly and allowing as how you've probably got a point, even if you've just called us "evil." We might call you "dude," and we'll definitely continue to smile benignly until you sink into sobbing exhaustion, beating your tiny little fists against our smooth, patchouli-smelling chests.

If California and Oregon ever merge into one state, its motto will have to be "That's just, like, your opinion, man."


I am from the East Coast, born and bred. Live in the NYC area now, grew up in New England.

I know consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds and all that, but Good Lord, these people suffer almost psychotic levels of disconnect.
