This is what you get when I let the Mangler loose on this blog... (bits in brackets are my comments/snark)


All hail information leakage!
(Hail! Hail!)

blaming protesters and police in equal amounts for the last meme sitting in my inbox
(The Mangler blames everyone, it seems)

Unfortunately a millidrabble would contain just 0.1 words. According to the Tumtum tree.
(The Tumtum tree is well versed in the art of the millidrabble)

Tron Legacy to be 150MB of files (presumably including several large binaries) and another 280MB of revision history!
(Tron fits on a CD!)

The Commons holds a debate on the cart
(UK politics at its finest)

In the depths of winter, the sun rises about ten minutes because of an operating system limitation/bug
(So this is why the sun rises later in winter)

a fair amount of police out for a nice game of chess?
(King's pawn, proceed to f6 and take that knight into custody)

if their willpower is strong enough you'll suddenly find yourself collapsing to the internets
(Internet duel!)

Side of the Sith DIIIIIIIIIVVEEEEE!
(Followed a couple of lines later by)
Slaves of the Sith DIIIIIIIIIVVEEEEE!

You post perfectly good snark-bait, and then (only if the analysis supports it) a trial period before making any permanent changes.
(The Mangler explains how to test reader's reactions to snark)

Unhand the tail. No one, repeat, no one, touches the tail. No one, repeat, no one, touches the tail. No one, repeat, no one, touches the tail. No one, repeat, no one, touches the tail. No one, repeat, no one, touches the tail. Period, exclamation mark!
(Clearly you do not touch the tail.)
