J.D. - the most appropriate tribute ever  

This is from The Onion, but it's so perfect.  I have love for this.  Salinger would probably hate it.  Oh, well.

Bunch Of Phonies Mourn J.D. Salinger

CORNISH, NH—In this big dramatic production that didn't do anyone any good (and was pretty embarrassing, really, if you think about it), thousands upon thousands of phonies across the country mourned the death of author J.D. Salinger, who was 91 years old for crying out loud.  "He had a real impact on the literary world and on millions of readers," said hot-shot English professor David Clarke, who is just like the rest of them, and even works at one of those crumby schools that rich people send their kids to so they don't have to look at them for four years.  "There will never be another voice like his."  Which is exactly the lousy kind of goddamn thing that people say, because really it could mean lots of things, or nothing at all even, and it's just a perfect example of why you should never tell anybody anything.

He probably would hate it. But that doesn't stop me from laughing myself sick. XD

Yeeeeah, he would sue the crap out of whoever wrote it. But still: funny.

Have I told you I heart your Yelling Bird icon? Because I totally do.

Lol. The Onion has been full of win of late. What with the Product-Unveiling Product article, this, and others. Huzzah!
