TED CHIANG AND THE MORASS

Evil Monkey:
Dude. I need a vacation from all these freakin' blog entries. I've got a life.

Jeff:
Just say your lines and you can go eat bananas and drink beer.

Evil Monkey:
...

Jeff:
C'mon.

Evil Monkey:
...Okay...So. Jeff. Why haven't you responded to Ted Chiang and his Evil Assembly Line?

Jeff:
I just got sick of the discussion, no disrespect to Ted. And I wasn't sure why. I had this response to his response all planned out. And I just didn't have any enthusiasm for the debate.

Evil Monkey:
And then Hal Duncan--

Jeff:
That's my line!...And then Hal Duncan posted about it and I realized--

Evil Monkey:
You realized Hal and his Evil Rhinceros had said very eloquently what you'd really like to say, which is simply that the attempt to categorize in the way he did serves no purpose and yada yada yada thus this post where we're talking to each other just so you can get this out into a post and PISSING ME OFF WITH CONSTANT DEMANDS FOR HELP WITH BLOG ENTRIES and I'm outta here. I'm out. I'm taking a break. I'm gone. I will be back, but I am going to go get my bananas. I am going to go get my booze. And I'm going to go watch the Hopkins-Taylor fight and watch some football while I'm at it.

Jeff:
Can I join you?

Evil Monkey:
No. Stay in Blogoland with all the blogomites.

Jeff:
Well...good night, then...

Evil Monkey:
... Crap. Don't give me the beaten puppy dog look. You know I can't take it.

Jeff:
....

Evil Monkey:
Okay, fine--come watch the fight with me, you weirdo.

Jeff:
Thanks, Evil!

Evil Monkey:
Don't mention it. Really--don't mention it.

Having enjoyed fruit ales like Cherry beer from Belgium I wonder if there is a Bananana Beer which would help keep Evil Monkey occupied?

None taken. I'm rapidly reaching that point myself.

When I had previously expressed my ideas on Jed Hartman's blog, there were only a couple of responses. So, when I first wrote my post, I thought the most I'd get was a discussion in the comment thread. Instead I seem to be fighting a battle on several fronts.
