Schmaybe pushing back that very first time against Papa John’s wasn’t the smartest public relations move eh-vah, eh? And SCHMAYBE NOT FIRING the fat, insensitive little asshole who thinks picking on a defenseless three year old when he is bereft of anything remotely clever or funny enough in time for his deadline is good enough to call a “day’s work” and collect a paycheck will be reconsidered during the next Wonkette board meeting: perhaps cast as a nominee to the pantheon of “ALL TIME bad editorial executive decisions.”

That is, IF there is a board, providing…IF there IS a Wonkette, WHICH, God willing…they may have taken care of themselves this very day, coupe de gras-wise as far as cash flow.

A quote from “Hunt for Red October” keeps running through my head thinking about these snide douche bags, when a simple, immediate, “You’re right. We fucked up,” could have saved it all.

The end of the movie. Playing chicken with torpedos. Red October ducks. And the Russian helmsman says to his Captain,

You arrogant ass! You’ve killed US!!!

The antagonist goes down under the hand of his own hubris.

    Looks like Wonkette is reliving the days of anal penetration, sans monetary compensation.

    Coup de grâce.

    ‘Coupe de gras’ would be a ‘car of liver’.
