Today in Amazing Things

Earlier in the week, I read this article about how the first time Tommy Lee Jones met Jim Carrey, the former didn't like the latter on sight and when Carrey asked Jones why, he replied, "I cannot sanction your buffoonery."

Which is basically the most amazing thing that any human being has ever said to another human being.

I mean, if someone just walked up to me and told me "I cannot sanction your buffoonery," I wouldn't even be offended. I would be awed.

Obviously, this is totally going to be my new standard response to trolls.

Something something antifeminist trope. I CANNOT SANCTION YOUR BUFFOONERY. Something something rape apologia. I CANNOT SANCTION YOUR BUFFOONERY. Something something anti-choice nonsense. I CANNOT SANCTION YOUR BUFFOONERY.

For the record: Please let it be known hereafter that I do not have "resting bitch face." I have "resting I cannot sanction your buffoonery face."
