“Oh, Lord. I covet my neighbor’s ass. I would not act on it, but I do. Two doors down. I am DOOMED.” — WaPo‘s “humor” columnist Gene Weingarten. He must’ve been self-conscious this weekend because he also wrote: “I think it is possible that every single person following me is better looking than I am. It’s kind of empowering.” In explanation of his coveting his neighbor’s ass, he wrote, “Holy crap. Just reread Ten Commandments: We have a petty, assholic God! Unfollow Him!” And this: “Seriously have you READ this thing? Don’t worship any other Gods or I will KILL YOU and your CHILDREN and THEIR CHILDREN! #FU10Commandments.” The link doesn’t work, which means Gene may have to return to the Apple Genius Bar. God help those nerds.
