I just said to someone the other day, "Remember when The Stranger used to do stuff like 'Best of Sea-Tac?' Lindy West gives me hope for more hilarity.

Her letter is a reminder that the stranger's search is lacking, despite the fact that it uses google.

Best of Seattle 2002?

Sad. Pearls before swine, Mr. Savage.

I think something that would suit that type is over here.

Perhaps if you did a legit ad-based special section you wouldn't be cutting popular and well-liked feature's like Forney's and Garbles'.

Just sayin'.

It's not like you are immune to it (the fashion issue was a giant blow job to advertisers).

How did I get so old?? I loved the "Best of Nooksack," but there's just no way that came out in 1999. None. Not possible.

The links in the very old article are busted. I really wanted to read about the Rad Dyke Plumber.

What's the point? That The Stranger is in love with how clever it supposedly is, or was, before reusing jokes from 2002?

Ha ha ha

Why don't you do an issue that's truly Best Of. You won't, for the same reasons you mock here.

Newspapers are dying, even the free ones.

I seen you today Hipster. You had a cigarette in one hand and a Stranger in the other. You smelled like stinking cigarette smoke as you puffed away feeding your loser addiction. Your ear lobes were sagging with ear plugs that went out of style five years ago. And those tats? The colors have faded and they are starting to merge into an ugly blob. Didn't you ever notice what tats look like on older men? You thought those fuckers would forever be in style? Would you like to wear the same fucking shirt every day for the rest of your life? And that tat on your neck-it shouts LOSER to everyone who sees it. But being a loser is your thing right? That's why you read the Slog.

I like to get black out drunk by myself, put on "I Want A New Drug" by Huey, then stand in front of the mirror stripped naked and whisper the above missive to my reflection.

That's how i roll.

We suck. Please don't read our blog.

You know what to call it when you are eating out an asshole and the owner of that asshole farts in your face? Caeser Salad! Get it? I read that somewhere.

@12: Kill yourself. You are boring, and far, far less funny than you think you are.
