I tried, people. Really, I did. Lord knows, there have been many occasions in my life where I said I would do something, but then The Prestige was on HBO. But I totally intended to select the winners of the Clichemageddon contest for today.
The problem is that you are just too funny, internet. I’m pretty sure I spent less time picking out my kid’s name than I have over the last week weighing the merits of various mock-cliches. I printed out 22 pages worth of them, and went to work with my trusty highlighter. But I reached a point at which it was clear the amount of entries I was highlighting would require me to print out THAT list, and go through it a SECOND time with a highlighter, perhaps of a different color. Then I watched The Prestige, which is really awesome.
All this is to say, between phoning it in and putting it off, I choose to wait until next week and write a nice big Clichemageddon post. So stay tuned for Clichemageddon: The Reckoning. And hey, since it’s so damn pretty, here’s that animated gif again:
