Dragging out Bunny Sloping

I agree that correcting Maureen Dowd probably is the "Bunny Slope of blogging," and that fisking the LA Times is slightly more challenging (although I'm not sure Maureen Dowd would agree).

I guess that means I should be properly embarrassed to be spending so much of my time with the Philadelphia Inquirer, especially because I don't have to go anywhere to do it. The paper hits my driveway every morning with a big thud! (Uh, this morning it was probably a squishy slosh sound, as there's slushy icy snow all over the ground.) I'm on some kind of slope, that's for sure.

But I'm like really shameless about these things, and while I don't know what the correct terminology should be, let's assume that Maureen Dowd is for Bunny Slopers, that the LA Times is more advanced, and that the slope level of the Inquirer is unknown (although definitely not at the advanced level).

What would you call correcting Barbra Streisand? (Jeff's post is hilarious, BTW, and don't miss this new high in slopery.)

Just curious.

And I'm not pointing any fingers. As I said, I'm shameless.

Not to get literal about cute terms like "Bunny Slope," but now that I'm thinking it over, didn't we have a recent presidential candidate who not only wore a bunny suit, but had a problem with ski slopes?

I'm glad that that bunny slope's behind us.

But still...

Doesn't "Bunny Slope" sound like the name of a drag queen?

MORE (12/07/05): Dr. Helen (aka the Instawife) joins in speculation about whether Barbra Streisand is on crack cocaine. Her conclusion (based on highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment) is that the "signs point to yes."

Who'da thunk it?

It's true, it's like shooting kittens in a bag

Kittens?

I'm not gonna touch that lest the slope get slipperier.
