Default Truth Within Humor, One Man's Opinion

The quote, “Many a truth is spoken in jest.” was said by Egbert Craddock Cummins, a character in H.G Well's story "The Obliterated Man". Within the humor, sarcasm, opinion and vulgarity, Drew Magary makes some valid points about losing some unwanted Toledos. I found it to be an interesting blog entry. Maybe you will, too.

Thanks for sharing this. I laughed my butt off (I wish). lol You're correct. He does make some valid points and really just says what most of us are thinking anyway. I would never say it the way he does (especially with the frequent "f bombs"), but there's a lot of truth in his blog post. Again, thanks for sharing.
