Huffington

The Huffington Post delves into cross-stitch. Be sure to read the comments because the author gets slammed for mixing craft metaphors.

"Trust us when we tell you, these aren't the kinds of crafts you'd see in your grandmother's living room (unless, of course, you have a total badass for a grandma, in which case a congratulations are in order). "

Still with the grandmothers? Giant eye roll. I'm sorry, people, I lost count.

Well, *my* grandmothers didn't cross stitch, and my mum - who is now a grandma - used to but not any more because her eyes aren't up to it!

Although technically I suppose I'm now about the age my gran became a grandmother, so does that make me a grandma in the eyes of those who diss the stitch?

*confused*

Except the ninny calls it "cross stitches". And evidently we craft our epic cross stitches with knitting utensils.

Memo to Morgan Evans: Go back to writing about anything with words like CRAZIEST or AWESOME or MOST INSANE in the title. And leave us alone.

I was almost (almost) lol at the one commenter who "loved the keyboard cat". I do want the "Don't bleed on the carpet". "Epic" is something huge and meaningful. Like if you were to stitch the original text of Beowulf - that would be epic - literary-ly and figuratively. :)

A poorly executed posting by The Huffington Post, but the Chuck Norris XS made me LOL.

I almost had to laugh at the Chuck Norris one. I suppose there is someone out there who wouldn't mind it hanging in her (or his) house. I'm not that someone!

I'd forgotten about the Chuck Norris one. My husband has a shirt that says "Rock, Paper, Scissors...Chuck Norris - I Win". I guess I'll have to go on a hunt for that pattern for when he finally gets his man-cave.

I can't even begin to want to comment on that!
