Dear Trib,

I noticed this photo in your photo gallery on Sunday:

That’s lovely. How fortunate for you that you happened to be around when a pedestrian accident that injured three people, one critically, took place in the Strip.

Did you jump up on a garbage can to get that exact angle so that we could not only see the poor lady slumped up there on the right side, but also a nice full body shot of the second victim lying unconscious as medics tend to her needs.

Trib? If my hot little self is ever rammed by a PAT bus (I’ve had several close calls, and if PittGirl ever gets hit by a moving vehicle it will be a PAT bus) and I glance up through my blood crusted eyeballs to see you standing over me snapping photos, I will rip the tubes from my body, pick up my severed arm and then proceed to bitch slap you senseless with it.

I’m so glad we’ve reached this understanding.

    The funny thing about how much you openly hate on the Trib is that your blog is linked from their website. I love this irony. It is as if they (people of the Trib) enjoy your colorful commentary on their ridiculousness. LOVE IT!!

    Well, if you’ve read my blog long, you’ll know that I have been snarking on the Trib since early on. Not only their attempts to sell photos that should not be sold, but also their stories in general, and lately, their awesome weather graphic. But I don’t hate them at all.

    I’d like to think that I spread the snark equally between the Trib and the PG. I have also long said that it is only a matter of days before they remove me from their blog roll, but I hope not.

    I’m being facetious in the name of Burgh love.

    Just hope that after you beat the shit of the Trib photographer that they don’t take you to Monsour.

    I’d just beat the Monsour doctors senseless too. Severed arms are really really great weapons.
