Let The Backlash Begin...
Every now and then we'll check our Gmail account to see if anyone A: Has tips for us, B: Wants us to harbor money for them, or C: Check our Sitemeter statistics. Well, low and behold comes our first ever reader response from little Daphne Sellers in Alabama. She types lovingly to us in response to our looks at ESPN Member Douchebags:
May I say to you, there are a lot of people who take offense to the use of this term being taken so lightly. This birth defect, Cleft Lip, is a fact, IT HAPPENS! To all sorts of children from all walks of life. Russian, Chinese, AMERICAN, rich, poor, black, white, it doesn’t matter. Not one of them asked for it, but will suffer the pain and emotional insecurities because of statements like yours, regardless. It is my prayer that your children, grandchildren, siblings, etc. will be born healthy without birth defects, but don’t be so sure you will be excluded, cleft lip and palate affects 1 in every 700 births………… it’s not an easy road to travel. Have mercy! When will we stop taking cheap shots and hurting those who are not born flawless.
When I saw this, I immediately notified Noce of such joyous news. People in Alabama actually own computers! That's fucking amazing! And to think we were only reaching random Carbuncles in Germany..Well, you write, and we write you back:
First of all I'd like to say thank you for visiting our little corner of the blogsphere. It's not often we receive feedback from female readers and certainly not the type that get all bent out of shape over a little jab at the hilarious deformity you seem to know so much about. I couldn't help but laugh out loud as I read your whiny, annoying little email to my friends and coworkers, who all equally thought you should go fist yourself.
Did it make you feel better about yourself to send me that email and waste the time it took me to read it plus the time it's now taking me to let you know how much of a waste of sperm you were? I sure as shit don't. So next time you have a problem with something I've written on here, please, close your eyes, walk out your front door towards the street and see how far you get before you get side swiped by a guy in a Yukon who's looking at his precious "birth defect" instead of the crazy bitch walking in traffic with her eyes closed.
And tell your dad I loved his work on the Branded series, maybe someday he'll get out of that iron lung and smack some sense into you.
Hugs and Kisses,

PS: I will have a Super Bowl edition of looks at ESPN Member Douchebags thanks to Trunk at MBSR very soon.
