    I'm trying to figure out what's stranger: that City Desk has a "monkeyrotica" tag, or that the presence of this tag implies that Monkey's secret identity is either Erik Wemple, Andrew Beaujon, or Jule Banville.

    I propose a bail out plan that involves selling upset the setup shirts on u street for me.

    "tags," in this crazy Internet world, are actually pretty easy to come by.

  • Reid

    Yeah, for reels. I got me one of those tags, and it wasn't even for a particularly funny joke, even by my low standards.

  • Stating the Obvious

    Meta funny or just truthful funny? You decide!

  • Will

    Funny and sad. Come back to college, CP, where we write huge cover stories all the time.

  • Ernest

    "Who’s responsible for this content bankruptcy?"

    To be perfectly blunt, it’s your crappy content. Why not write with seductive immediacy, broaching topics of universal concern with contemporary succinctness? Maybe then people will like you as they do NYT, WaPo, Huffington Post or AdultFriendFinder and other successful outlets.

  • Amanda Hess

    Hey "Ernest," thanks for commenting. Rejoice! It is your very own seductively immediate, succinctly contemporary, universally concerning anonymous blog commentary that shall live on in this brave new content world.

  • Reid

    And good luck on the SATs Ernest!

  • Ernest

    I wish you had any, Reid. I sense the pinnacle of your academic achievement was a D- in every subject they teach in elementary.

  • J

    Ernest - why bother commenting if you hate city paper so much? Go back to your smart reading and leave the city paper readers alone. Fucking loser

  • Dave

    Yeah Ernest, that is some grape Otter Pop-level purple prose. Tone it down, seriously.

  • Peggy

    Well, I like Ernest. I think he is absolutely wonderful. Nobody has to be like you two, you know.

  • Dave

    Oh just get a room already.

  • Sam

    Sounds like the two really went for it.

  • Megan

    Who did, Sam? J and Dave?

  • Sam

    No, the other two.

  • Megan

    But Ernest can't have her. She belongs to a navy pilot.
