Back when newspapers were still popular, important, and relevant, there was a saying, "Never pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel."
Although the power of the Internet has given the ink to the people, the adage is still true: "Never pick a fight with someone who can spank you on national television."
During Tina Fey's acceptance speech, she said, "You can find a loooot of people who don't like you (on the Internet). And I'd like to address some of them now."
She then proceeded to tell three of her detractors to "suck it." Too funny.
Tina Fey 1, Haters 0. Plus 5 bonus points for doing it on national television.
Of course, there's that old ink by the barrel thing again, and DianeFan, Cougar-Letter, and BabsonLaCrosse all had something to say about Tina's little shout out.
The three commenters – or possibly two, since another message board writer says DianeFan and Cougar-Letter are the same person – are frequent message board writers on The Envelope column, hosted at the LA Times.
