Botched Jokes

I love it when athletes, coaches, or politicians say things like, "This isn't an excuse, but..." then they make an excuse.

Or when they say, "I'm sorry if anyone was offended," like it was the offendee's fault.

Or when they apologize for the phrasing of the statement, saying they are sorry that "it came out that way" or that it was "misinterpreted."


DMS would like to issue the following statement:

We here at Dear Mr. Supercomputer would like to apologize if anyone was offended by yesterday's gratuitous use of the word "shit." This isn't an excuse
but rest assured though, there is simply no other word to describe that particular substance. Other euphemistic words simply won't do. Perhaps we could have chosen other words to express ourselves. And for that, we apologize.


I'd say it was a "botched joke" but I think most of the material on this blog is botched.
