…It lacks only a “Bless Your Heart.”

I technically first saw this over at AoSHQ, but my wife was telling me about this yesterday: it’s apparently a letter written in 1865 from a former slave to his former master, who had written to him offering a job after the Civil War.  If you ever want to learn how to tell somebody to go perform a sexual act upon himself without once using profanity and/or a direct insult, this would be an excellent place to start.

    By thunder and all its echoes, that man could give any blogger alive for the quality of his snark, the sharpness of his wit, and the depth of his soul. That was fantastic.

    PS No, I don’t know where that exclamatory came from either.

    That, my friends, is how snark is done. Thanks goodness that men of his caliber stayed in these United States of America and spread those genes into the fabric of this great land.

    That was an excellent laugh. Oh my.

    He would have made a great blogger.

    I say we dub him the first dead tree (offline? snailmail?) blogger. That was full of win.
