Not Inadequate, Single, Bald or Cauliflower-Nosed. Possibly Slightly Seedy.

I’ve decided to outsource my blogging today, by coming up with an idea for a post, and then simply waiting until someone else writes it. For instance, when Andrew Marr says something as deeply wrong-headed as this:

> A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed, young men sitting in their mother’s basements and ranting. They are very angry people.

I can just wait around, until Shane Richmond writes something like this:

> It’s disappointing to hear comments like that coming from someone in Andrew Marr’s position. Criticising bloggers was 2005’s pastime. Any self-respecting curmudgeon these days is complaining about Twitter.
And then I can suggest that you read the last paragraph in particular, because There Be Insight.
This blogging lark is dead easy, isn’t it?
