It all started here…
…and spiralled well out of control. Here are are my very special personal favourite picks. One note: you'll figure this out on your own but half the fun is that the sayers of the eponymous shit are played by the people upon whom they inflict it, e.g. the white girl is portrayed (rather stunningly) by the black girl, the girl by the gay man, etc. Good po-mo constructed-identity fun.
