Your RDA of Irony

Hi, I’m Eugene And I Have This Special Offer….

There are some real advantages to subscribing to The New York Times

I subscribe to exclusive benefits
Dear Home Delivery Subscriber,As a subscriber, you have access to more than just the delivery of the newspaper. Your subscription includes FREE benefits :

  1. The exclusive right to use the words post-modernist, louche, bildungsroman and Proustian in a single sentence.
  2. Free brunch at any home in the Hamptons.  Just show up with a copy of the Sunday Styles and demand the meal.
  3. Refer to Pulitzer-winning dramatists by their first name. (In the case of Mr. O’Neill, Gene may be pushing it.)
  4. Receive a complimentary tote bag or sweatshirt, emblazoned with our proud crest:  Of course, I’m insufferable.  I read The New York Times.

    “I’ll trade you the Magazine for the Book Review.”

    I’m starting to get just as sick of the NY Times commercials during Jeopardy as I was of HeadOn.

    • Eugene Finerman says:

      “I’m fluent in three sections: self-adoration, condescension and gratuitous references to the Ivy League.”

      Ironically, that actor is the only one who looks like he might read the Times.
