Heh heh. Jeff just called Mary Worth a Luddite. She is afraid of technology. Because Jeff spends a lot of time reading, he knows that the Luddites were a group of early 19th century workers who went around destroying machines they perceived to be taking away their jobs. They took their name from their folkloric hero, Ned Ludd,who apparently was an idiot who smashed a weaving machine because he preferred using his needles.
Mary Worth, like Ned Ludd, is too stupid to see the benefits of Jeff's new Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technologyand tomorrow she will smash Jeff's portable reading device to pieces over his highly educated head.
In other (slow death) news: The Central Illinois Post-Gazette has announced it will no longer print Mary Worth. In their classifieds section. Boy, talk about being tossed off the garbage scow. Not fit for the classifieds? You may want to post a comment on their blog and let them know that they have no sense of humor at the Post Gazette. I mean, how could a comic strip that just spent an entire week discussing differing opinions about the Kindle not be genius funny?
