It’s in the Pee Eye

posted by on April 19 at 12:38 PM

Wait a minute: I thought we were the juvenile paper!

P-I employees had no doubt who won this battle of the old media dinosaurs, immediately breaking into a daylong, celebratory bacchanal that culminated that night with a rented limo full of drunken reporters pulling up to Fairview Fanny… and unceremoniously emptying their bladders on the Times’ front lawn.

No, it doesn’t take much imagination to picture grizzled newspaper-war veterans sottedly writing their names in the grass, but the image of a certain female reporter squatting on Frank Blethen’s lawn — marking his territory as hers — that is sure to become an oft repeated tale of local journalism lore.

Once a bunch of Stranger employees snuck into the Weekly’s office, smoked pot, and stole a bunch of Seattle Weekly coffee cups. But we kept our dicks in our pants. Because we’re, like, adults.

Brilliant! You may be adults, but the P-I knows how to live.

I'm always up for peeing on a Blethen's property.

Until I read it in the P-I I won't believe it.

Wait a minute--is the pee eye at all related to the anal wink?

Don't worry Dan, you guys are still the juvenile paper. The other ones don't even come close!

Adults keep their dick in their pants?

So, in other words, the PI knows how to party, but The Stranger is too stuck up?

Figures.

Oh yeah, I forgot: Licking doorknobs is so-oooo mature.

Yeah right, Dan.

Publishing drawings of what local pols might look like naked alongside supposed "serious" candidate profiles is so-ooo cerebral.

Uh-Huh.

Smuggling pot brownies and fake guns into the mayor's office is just so damned adult.

You betcha.

And you're how old? Fifty three years old?

"Oh, I'm still young. I snow-board!"

"Oh, I'm still hip. I write a sex-advice column."

"Oh, I'm still relevant. I still edit a once half-way witty alternative rag that long ago turned mainstream, and now jocks the Seattle Times every chance it gets to validate itself as serious journalism."

Sure. Whatever.

Git-over-yer "adult" self already, jerkwad.

Wow, future Dan, way to get present Dan's sarcasm.
