You Are Dumb, which is not a blog, posts new columns every weekday, except for a couple of days each month when it doesn't. It is also a Twitter feed, @youaredumb, with content in a similar vein but much shorter. My spinoff food site, Forkbastard, can be found easily enough by the clever.
Today, I'd like to remind my newer readers that You Are Dumb is not technically updated every weekday. It's updated every weekday that I feel like it, which traditionally translates to every weekday. But some days, I can't work up the energy, the gumption, or rarely, the material to even half-ass a column. Sometimes I just skip, and sometimes I hire me a stand-in. Today's stand-in is Fernie, The Hating Fern.
Fernie does the hating for you! You see, Fernie's lot in life is a crappy, 3-D rendered fern. This fills him with hate that, being a fern, he can't really express or direct. So I have partnered with Fernie in a mutually symbiotic relationship. Here's how it works. You put your hand on the screen, and think of something dumb that you want hated, and Fernie will hate it for both of us. With hate to spare.
Me, I've asked Fernie to hate every last one of you that actually put your hand to the screen. But I don't hold a grudge, and neither does Fernie. Come back tomorrow.
