Great stuff. Although to be truly appreciated, Sedaris' writing has to be read out loud, by Sedaris.

Damn, I feel sorry for that kid.

i still think that sedaris is highly overrated. but i'm sure that's also part of his charm, in some twisted fashion.

Ugh...sedaris is our greatest living humo(u)rist.

thank you for the link, jason.

ASIDE: seems like sedaris is going deeper into mining tough personal territory, SANS irony. I think it suits him well.

Makes you tired of irony...
