As I was reading one of Barry's drive-by-poke-in-the-eye comments this morning, it occurred to me... I wonder if smart-ass is a "zero-sum game"? Does BRB serve a "filtering" function to society overall by providing an outlet for our moments of recreationally-motivated torment or do we as a population just have so much snark stored up that BRB just provides additional opportunities to share our talents?
As a corollary, would the following be true ?
- Does AllenOU send multiple copies of his emails when he sends one?
- Does UpRooted Texan swat neighborhood dogs with his copy of the Communist Manifesto?
- Does Tim share his stockpile of Zima with friends and family or is it a closely guarded secret outside the interwebz?
- Does Mrs BFD know about the sponge-bath arrangement with [insert newest BRB writer's name here]?
- Has Jordann finally located the ultimate source for Filipino-tranny-porn and therefore abandoned us forever?
- Does theGrindCrusher have a ghost-writer or is he just. that. good.?
- Does Scott really exist or was he just a long-running DGDB&D joke?
- Did Bryan90210 finally give in and start talking to himself in order to finally have a conversation with an intellectual equal?
Inquiring minds want to know.
