Don't you *know* that there is an official ban on phony umbrage, bad puns, and the wordie treatment until I can turn them in at 2pm tomorrow???

    November 1, 2008

  • That's a reprehensible insuation chained_bear.

    October 31, 2008

  • That question is offensive.

    I take umbrage that anyone could possibly ask me to retract my demand for a retraction. Reesetee, your actions are deplorable. I demand that you immediately issue a retraction of your demand that I retract my demand for bilby's retraction!

    I am highly offended. And also quite a bit confused.

    October 31, 2008

  • I see you've made it out of the self-hole, chained_bear. And I'm shocked--shocked--that you would take umbrage at bilby's comment. I demand that you retract your demand for a retraction.

    October 31, 2008

  • Bah, not enough there for you to get upset about. I am not a premature retractulator.

    P.S. Why do you have cliches on your lizard?

    October 31, 2008

  • Bilby, that phrase is actually posted on the top of my monitor. And I am highly offended that you would stoop to such depths as to quote my silly monitor sayings simply to make a comment. I demand a retraction.

    October 30, 2008

  • Clearly, chained_bear is mocking the difficulties that average Wordies face when posting on pages such as "marathon of phony umbrage taking." I mean, is she or is she not for the people?

  • I just want you all to know that I am keeping a detailed list of all the infractions of the norms of civilized behavior that go on here. So don't delude yourselves that your assorted transgressions will pass unnoticed.

    Apologize, retract, atone, renounce NOW. While there is still time.

    You know who you are.

  • That is an execrable statement and I demand a retraction. I am shocked—shocked!—that a fine marsupial such as yourself would repudiate all the opportunities you've been given. To apologize, I mean. Or to use brackets! I am shocked.

    October 30, 2008

  • Why do you hate freedom?

    October 30, 2008

  • I take umbrage at that, reesetee. There is no comparison between your reprehensible comments and Atourgates's demand for a renouncement of my condemnation of your remarks. The decent thing to do is apologize and renounce your terrorist pals.

    October 30, 2008

  • I'm highly offended! You will apologize immediately.

    Both of you.

    October 30, 2008

  • Ha! When I read your other excerpt (on gnome) I was going to suggest you add this phrase to Wordie. We must think alike.

    That frightens me.

    October 30, 2008

  • As a phrase, seen here, with a link to this article.

    What a great phrase. We should use it more often. Wordie is a fine place for phony umbrage taking.
