After being caught filing a copyright application for a book which claimed that he was the anonymous blogger Paul Krendler and which contained material stolen from Krendler’s The Thinking Man’s Zombie blog and from Hogewash!, Bill Schmalfeldt engaged in a futile campaign trying to paint me as a plagiarist. The resulting pointage, laughery, and mockiification earned byt the Cabin Boy™ provided a nice boost to popcorn sales. When Schmalfeldt doubled and tripled down on his stupid attack, I ran this post titled Dead Horse Du Jour two years ago today.

The Cabin Boy™ continues to flog a dead horse, a fake news story with no traction in the real world.Given the trend in popcorn sales, it appears that the Gentle Readers are amused by Bill Schmalfeldt’s continued ranting which has been an excellent example of the principle that insanity is doing the same thing over again while expecting a different result. BTW, although that definition has been attributed to Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and others, the earliest example of it in print is probably in the Basic Text of Narcotics Anonymous, a connection that suggests the Cabin Boy™ may need to put down the bong.
