This was posted under Jezebel’s “Tell Us Your Most Extravagant Purchase” post.
The commenter is an old Gawker/Jezebel veteran. For a time he posted on Crosstalk (Clashtalk’s forebear), and every one of his posts there had the theme of “Mine is the best of the best.” If he had lamb chops for dinner, they would be the best chops butchered by the best butcher from the best lamb ever raised in the history of ungulates.
In the comment below, he doesn’t mention that his uncle/boss in San Francisco fired him.
This part of his comment, though, is true: “Maybe I don’t quite get the question.”
