All my Friends are Cowboys

I sent Isaac a belated birthday wish last week. This was (most of) his reply:
I am chewing on a German article about Charon of Lampsacus. Of all the early Ionian logographers, he was by far the biggest slut. Everyone says so, Hellanicus, Xanthus, Hecataeus, even Thucydides. The guy would write a local history for any city-state in Asia Minor; it was disgusting.

  • "Chewing on a German article"? How stupid. That kind of cliche reflects lazy thinking. If we take that expression literally, it's obvious how ridiculous it is. Instead, he should have said, "Frying a German article in olive oil and eating it with a baguette."

    P.S. I am not a slut. Shut UP!
