Here at the Paddock Pulse, we occasionally like to change things up and depart a bit from the usual snarky comments on the links. And by "we," I mean "I" because I'm the only one who contributes to the Paddock Pulse, dammit.
In a couple of instances this has been because of a statement I wanted to make, but largely it's because I get lazy when I do this every week, and moreover sometimes I worry that the people who I generously honor with extra pageviews don't always appreciate being compared to Bolivian drug mules and potato abusers.
This week's Pulse experiment? I am quoting a line from each link out of context. In a couple of cases, this won't be funny at all because the author just decided against writing anything crazy or stupid (thanks a lot, fellas). But hey, I never promised you a rose garden, mostly because why the hell would I buy you a whole garden when property taxes are so ridiculous?
Anyway, enjoy the change of pace. I'll most likely revert to being insulting and gratuitously unfunny next week.
