I'm watching "Married By Christmas" (Hallmark) with my mom after reading Brian Birnbaum's review of it: Is Paul gay? Are gay people allowed into the Hallmark universe?

The source, my dear, is Twitter itself, I'm afraid. The prose in question appeared in my "Trends for you" feed.

Twitter, can we talk about the surreal mixed metaphor in “Kanye reignites beef with Drake and then (possibly) squashes it”? I can accept “beef” being set on fire again (“reignited”) but Kanye then “squashes” the flaming “beef” somehow—with his foot? Vivid and surreal.

That's right. Always go with the Poochigian translation.

Ohh, Mr. Howard. I'm with you. I'm an oral/aural poet, and my first concern is always what the poetry sounds like. This poem will be published, however, and I have to worry about what it will look like on the page. Hmn.

Alright, new formats. Do you prefer #1 or #2? (It's like you're at the optometrist's office--#1 or. . . #2?) It's not easy revitalizing alliterative verse in the 21st Century, but someone has to do it. Thank you for your feedback.

Defiantly of Love: Promise to love her forever and always, come what may, while the basso bum with his bottle of rum and the post-industrial river sing defiantly, defiantly, defiantly of love.

In the movies he exults over demolishing fake Tokyo. Why he does so is not my department.

Hey, Lit Twitter, how do we feel about these lines? Better? A chain-reaction! Cheered by the sound of zap and crash, you exult like Godzilla taking out model towers in Tokyo.

Dude, I'll drop the adverb and go "zap." How's this? Better? A chain-reaction! Cheered by the sound of zap and crash, you exult like Godzilla taking out model towers in Tokyo.

Hey, Lit Twitter, do we like these two lines: You exult like Godzilla zealously taking out model towers in Tokyo. ? Any suggestions?
