Sweeping: classic or dud?

An essay on American vomiting habits.

jel -- (jel), Wednesday, 15 January 2003 18:48 (nineteen years ago) link

oh, and how often does this sort of misreading happen to you?

jel -- (jel), Wednesday, 15 January 2003 18:48 (nineteen years ago) link

All the time.

I read An essay on American vomiting habits too and was thinking, "URGHH! SIck!" Then I thought maybe it was a spin-off of the Dieting thread...
