An Ironist Like No Other

Glenn Reynold's sense of humor can be so dry that one can hardly be sure when he's kidding. For example, yesterday, on Instapundit, he deftly tossed off this sublime bit of irony:
BLOG CENSORSHIP IN INDIA? It's going to be hard for India to make it as a technology leader if this kind of thing goes on.
Brilliant, yes, but shouldn't he be concerned that a number of his readers might think he's being serious?

Ha.

Irony projection. That's just psychologically unhealthy, riel.

I can't believe that the Indian folks have much time to look at web sites as they answer all of the incoming tech support questions coming in to them from the US, et al. I'm sure the article was satirical in nature since all evidence suggests that most Indians are kept quite busy and (relatively) weathly telling US citizens how to plug in their PCs (after a 20 minute wait on the phone).

Harlem, I was just trying to be funny. Glenn Reynolds (I don't know if you read Instapundit) is a first-degree ass. He really believes that India's technological advancement will be thwarted if they block out blogs. Your take on the situation seems a helluva lot more realistic.

I. too. was trying to be satyrical (sp?). We know how India (from India) folks are spending their time: not surfing the web for unveiled muslim chicks but telling idiot Americans how to reboot.
I did read the link and it was absurd. Ziel: I:ve told you before: Don't try to be funny. Unfortunately, reality is funny enough.
