^^^^Hey shit-for-brains, as with most people who post on this blog, your worthless comment had nothing to do with the article. Did you even bother to read it, or did you just have to slag artists to feel better about your creatively bankrupt life? The NEA has nothing to do with "starving" artists. How about you shut the fuck up, quit commenting on things above your pay-grade and don't speak until your spoken to again.

If this is such a worthless blog, why do you frequent it, asshole?

So you can lecture us and tell us to STFU, because we're not an intellectual giant like you?

^^^Hey dummy, never said the blog was worthless, I said your comment was. Do you see the problem here? Your a moron and your comments advertise it to the world. Save yourself from future embarrassment, don't post any more comments. You don't have anything of substance to add and you just end up exposing yourself as an ignorant rube.

3:52 Hey you pompous motherfucker. When I need some cock breath dip shit to read me the riot act I'll call your fucking boyfriend. Why would anyone who could read come to the Jacky da Ripper conspiracy theory blog and display any intelligence? I prefer to be a village idiot like you asshole. Now go read your fucking Tip and Mitten book and make sure you eat your greens 'cause you are full of shit. I will comment on any fucking thing I feel like Herkimer. When you own fucking Google then you will be at a pay grade that counts for anything shit breath.
