Careful With That Open Thread, Eugene

The hardest workin' man in the blogosphere, the Godfather of Computer-Script Automated Open Thread Creation, has topped himself.

Nineteen open threads in a row.

He used to, at least, give each open thread an individualized slugline. A line from a song or a movie, or a joke, or something. Not anymore. Now it's just all "Yeah, yeah, another stupid open thread."

Nineteen.

N-n-n-n-nineteen. Nineteen.

Check out his prolific output from 2:27 AM to 2:30 AM. Like, ten open threads during those three minutes alone. He's like the Steven King of empty blogging.

It's the blogging equivalent of a perfect game. No hits, no walks, no errors. No content.

It's like someone just blogged my entire sexual history. An unimpressive string of brief, clumsy efforts provoking frustration and confusion.

Tipster Marcus says that even some of his "audience," surely used to long strings of open threads by now, are "bewildered" at this latest burst of non-output.

There's nothing to be bewildered about. He just doesn't give a shit.

And I, for one, salute him for that.

With apologies to Jane Hamsher, who's a bear for protecting Atrios' "intellectual property" rights, below is a verbatim transcript of this singular achievement.
