Wait a minute -- this hyperlink is actually on top of a dog biscuit!

Hahaha... the narcissistic problems of folks in the first world (i.e., Manhattan) sure are funny.

Funny you say that, because that one had me rapidly vacillating between the two opinions you suggest. I certainly laughed aloud a few times, but even as I did so I wasn't quite sure the material was good enough to justify it.

Something very Lampoonesque about that column. Except Mike Yank's columns were funnier. Like the one about Adopt-A-Highway. Gotta find that.

(For the long, somewhat more homicidal treatment of the same joke see The Debt to Pleasure.)
