This is my favorite oneYou know you are a constant reader when someone says something disparaging about Stephen King and his work and you launch into your own version of The Bangorburg Address:
Four score and seven years ago (or whatever that would be) our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new author, conceived in a library, and dedicated to the proposition that not all writers are created equal. And STFU if you haven't read his books. Your opinion means nothing to me if you haven't read a good sampling of his work. And YES, Stephen King wrote The Shining. Why don't you know this? Dumba**.
(Sorry, vietnam flashback to a conversation I had with my library's information desk a couple days ago.)
