In Which I Substitute An Email Conversation with Liss for an Actual Post

Deeky: OMFGLOL! This is sooooooooooooo hilarious. (It's not.)

p.s. Get off my lawn!

Liss: The reason why this is stupid, apart from the fact that no one would ever do that, is that the "joke" is predicated on the erroneous assumption that technology necessarily undermines intimacy. Which might have been passable as "humor" before every single person on the planet w/ the privilege of an internet connection had themselves or knew someone who had fallen in love or made a fast and lasting friendship over the internet.

Now that shit just reads as: "Relationships formed via technology aren't real."

To which my only response is to invite its author to kiss my ass.

Deeky: Seriously. Whoever drew that is a total butthole.
