Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

All of the members of Team Kimberlin suffer from delusions of adequacy which causes them to overestimate their rank in the intellectual food chain. A couple of days ago, we took a look back at Matt Osborne’s pretentious use of the nom de cyber Xenophon. Today, we’ll look back to Bill Schmalfeldt’s use of the Tweeter handle King Leonidas.That called for a bit of pointage, laughery, and mockification, so six years ago today, I responded with this TKPOTD.

King Leonidas of Sparta was very brave. He was also a loser. His defeat came about when someone who should have been an ally turned out to be a traitor.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Once again, one of the Gentle Reader’s comments to the original post is worth repeating.Yes, indeed.
