    When I had read half of the original, I was thinking, "Does Dowd realize that she is making herself look so bad in her own column?" But it's fairly clear to me now that she did know and that she is at least partly making fun of herself, or at least playing straight woman.

    From the original article: “Oh, that’s the short trivial bursts of information that birds do.”

    They're not trivial! They have a complex recursive structure. :-)

    That 'brevity is the soul of wit' does not make all brief replies witty.
