Get thee to guest bitchery

Today’s OMG, you HAVE to read this link is guest bitchery from Selah March over at the Smart Bitches.

She knows how to wield a mighty rolled-up newspaper. :clap:

Tomorrow I may blog about the traumatic effects of one’s first professional editing on the Muse, but, as she’s still in an emergency therapy session, we won’t be discussing it today. Other than in dramatic whispers with lots of Jackie Chan-ish hand gestures.

Challenge for the day: an “actually a real word” synonym for ‘clotheslining’. As in:

“Where are we?” he asked, returning his seat to the upright position, nearly clotheslining himself with his seatbelt in the process.

    Selah says:
    Don’t squirt me with feminine hygiene spray and tell me it’s raining. :lmao: For God’s sake, ladies, if you haven’t the balls to say you don’t like us or the studmuffins we rode in on, at least don’t lower yourselves to hypocrisy. I–and, I suspect, many of my
    sisters in smut–would respect you more for a little forthright bitchiness than all the genteel double-speak in the world.

    Now THAT is an extraordinary, amazing rant.

    Oh heavens, I’m feeling slightly dizzy — a lady-like faintness, perhaps — and I’m on her side.

    Damn, though, she can write a rant.

    Isn’t it good? Sarah and I were all “HOLY CRAP THAT IS AWESOME” when we first read the rant. Man, we need to run more contests so we can have more Guest Bitches tear some shit UP.

    Shan….’clotheslining’ is acceptable. :wtf: is wrong with that word? I’ve heard it tons of times, seen it used in sports commentary and have read it in books.

    Leave the damn word in there

    :penguin: I agree with Jaci on the clotheslining. I use it all the time too.

    So, leave it alone and worry about other more important things.

    Like me. :dance:

    A picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s a photo of a crazy-ass wrestler clotheslining TWO people at once.

    I’m sure you’ve seen it in the movies as well, when tricksy people string up a line between two trees to catch unsuspecting riders right in the neck.

    Nice picture!

    I’m still in awe of the guest-bitchery, and still pondering how else to describe clotheslining. I mean…it’s clotheslining. We’ll see. I have bigger problems to deal with. :baby:
