well, if this track is any indication, no explanation is needed

and no doubt can possibly exist in anyone's mind that more greatness, the greatest greatness is yet to come. because you know how to be great. gooder greatness, even.
  Wed. 5/11/16 3:08pm Laura L:

Was it super great or just pretty great?
  Wed. 5/11/16 3:09pm berbo:

Don't bother explaining how great you are. The rest of us are the losingest losers, just total losers. We couldn't possibly understand your greatness.
Avatar    Wed. 5/11/16 3:11pm Irwin:

Laura, don't ask me to qualify or quantify the measure of greatness of the great thing I did. To do so would reduce greatness to a relative metric of itself.

Oh, great! Irwin's show is on!

That was the Jayhawks back there? Not bad.

It's true it is a great show--you're on a roll.

Keili lives in Florida, soon moving to Japan.

Too bad about Abba being one-hit wonders. They had potential.

You know what makes writing REALLY funny? Appending "LOL" after the attempt at humor. That signifies to the reader that they should be deeply, outwardly amused. It's a courtesy -- sort of like a laugh track. In case someone really dense doesn't get your joke.
