I love getting backhanded compliments. I don't know why, perhaps because they amuse the heck outta me by their sheer snideness, or perhaps because I intellectually envy those who can come up with the between-the-ribs remarks that land twenty minutes later. Also, they are generally so awful they can entertain for days.

My backhanded compliment today: "For something you claim to think is total bullshit, you sure know a lot about it."
