  1. I’m only commenting to see if I’m still alive, and not because I think Gruber is a self-righteous, egocentric, liberal, and yet strangely interesting person.

  2. Is there still time to buy product placement in this production?

    And will there be John Gruber action figures, or is that an oxymoron?

  3. [Silly is seen to be sitting in a tree, for reasons which are about to become apparent. He is intently scribbling something with a pencil onto a pad of paper that is set on a clipboard. He stops writing, holds the clipboard at arm’s length to consider his work for a moment, and then speaks.]

    Okay… How about this, buthidae?

    “K – I – S – S – I – N – G.”

    No… wait… that doesn’t rhyme, does it?


    [Silly fervently erases his prosaic creation with a vigor born of intense frustration.]

  4. Ife has a pad of paper, which are normally backed with cardboard, why must it be mounted on a clipboard?

    Got it!

    Greater area for product placement.

  5. First to say: you’ve got to be fucking kidding me.

    @12: Gruber is more likely an inaction figure. A Merlin Mann action figure would really get shit done.

  6. Looks like this will be an inspiring movie, John… in the same way that sky-diving onto a church steeple would be “inspiring.”
