Laugh of the Day from Fr. Z

Sunday is a great day for praying -- and laughing. I'm not sure what precipitated Fr. Z's "Litany for the Conversion of Internet Thugs" but it is, as he says, "For private use only, when truly irritated, and when the alternative is foul language."

So when your blog or website is visited by trolls, orcs, and uglies, you now have an antidote to prevent you from an uncharitable response and revenge through word bombs. Here is my personal favorite section of the Litany which needs no commentary from me.
From faceless Facebook admin drones, spare us O Lord.
From tweeting Twitter idiots, spare us O Lord.
From from heart-hardened spammers, spare us O Lord.
From liberal nut-case smear-blogging hacks, spare us O Lord.
From thread-dominating combox trolls, spare us, O Lord.
From sophomoric drive-by commentators, spare us, O Lord.
Thanks, Fr. Z, for a Sunday laugh and a reminder not to take the "internet thugs" too seriously.
