Once again I bring the flow with another in the focused totality of my peculiar idiomatic phrasing in an effort to make this "talking about comics" stuff easier to understand.
That's the theory, anyways. If it fails, remember--my intentions were good.
Now let's do this:
The K-Box [as in "Getting up on the,"]: Not unlike "getting up on a soapbox," the act of pontificating about comics (retcons, ill-considered plot turns, One More Day, etc.) that in the process of doing so causes any actual good points and reasoned arguments to be subsumed in what can only be termed self-immolation. Usually ends with some variation of the phrase "die in a fire."
In other words--no one can hear the good points you're making since the noise you're making while doing so it is drowning them out. And because it's on the Internet, it will probably be around forever.
Named after the original originator, naturally.
Author's Note: In the interests of full disclosure--I have all too often gotten on my K-Box in the past, so I'm just as guilty as anyone for throwing the fire and brimstone around. One of the reasons I started Witless Prattle in the first place was to see if it was possible to have thoughtful discussions of comics and the state thereof without it being necessary to whip myself up into a foaming froth.
Y'know, just for a change.
