Apparently peeved because we pointed out his Disney-DreamWorks mistake, ace reporter Nick Denton of Gawker and Valleywag fame now points out that when I posted this item about Opera, I said Opera was in Iceland, not Norway. Imagine that! Go here and scroll down to his comment. Says Nick: “Error spotted by Fake Steve Jobs — who’s “dentoning” himself these days. He picked up on a good story about a boardroom row at Norwegian browser maker, Opera. But then placed the company in Iceland. Oops.” Dr. Evil did not, however, correct me for calling the CEO of Opera an “Eskimo.” Perhaps he believes the dude really is an Eskimo?
Folks, it’s official: Nick Denton, the world’s most famous blogger, has joined the ranks of the clueless commentards who write in to correct FSJ’s foreign language and geography mistakes. Stunning. Worse yet is that the only reason the macrocephalic sodomite ran across my Iceland “mistake” was that he was busy stealing that item and putting it on his own wretched blog. You’d think he’d at least have the decency to pay me his going rate of $200 per item. No guff, kids. That’s what the King of Blog Media pays his hacks — a measly two bills per item. And that’s for premium items. No wonder he gets the best talent in the biz. Well, you’ve got to hand it to him. He’s got a great business going there.
UPDATE: I’m told the $200 per post figure is wrong. It’s actually $25. Ouch. Mr. Bigglesworth is gonna be living on cat food. FSJ regrets the error.
