The Ways That People Suck: Example #3,528.

So my husband edited this wonderful little piece for Archaeology Magazine.

Brilliant, no? Eti Bonn-Muller did a great job, and Eric will go down in history, if there is any justice, for coining the phrase "Brotzi."

Now, since the piece came out, three dried-up fucks* have written letters saying they're cancelling their subscriptions because they don't want to see Brad Pitt all up in their archaeology house.


Do your part for all that's good in humanity and drop Archaeology a line. And may your words be a line in the sand against the forces of humorlessness and overreaching self-regard.

*Please note that the opinions expressed in the blog post are not endorsed by the editorial staff of Archaeology Magazine. The view that these people are dried-up fucks is entirely personal on my part.

I LOVE the Iceman! My husband and I even use his peculiar posture as shorthand for when we're freezing our asses off: We'll look across the crowded frozen field or skating rink or whatever, and do the arm-up-over-the-head thing. That's the signal that says, "Get me the hell out of here. My nose is frozen and my ass is next."
Fuck them. Eric rocks. Melding science and show biz like that is inspired.
Best, Lisa

Wow, Julie... Eric's a senior editor at Archaeology Magazine?? That's wonderfully cool! Totally jealous of his job, despite the wierd public relations shit he has to deal with.

Doesn't Brad Pitt have the right to have, and illustrate (by way of tatoos, in his case) some everyday interests, like the rest of us? My experience with archaeology is that it, despite it's glamorous trappings, draws some people to it who are crusty, dry and tedious... apparently this is the ilk of these... critics who need to get with the 21st Century, if you ask me.

I think it's fucking hilarious that anyone who reads Archeology Magazine are so disinterested in what is going on in today's society even when it's showing that history is repeating it self...Shouldn't they be interested in this? Oh wait; that's probably sociology, not archeology. The are dried up old fucks.

I will totally write to Archeology Magazine and borrow my friend's credentials. She's an archeology prof. at SDSU. Hee!

Very impressive husband you have. :)

HA! Funny stuff!

You and your husband are both talented writers--fabulous.

I have a query and I really hate to do it here, but where else can I do it?
Who was the actor you mentioned in your book? The one you baked for?
I bought your book on Itunes, so I cannot look through the book to find it.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED your book. I grew up watching and loving Julia Child then I loved The Frugal Gourmet.
Thanks so much and I big you peace!

Hello, I have never posted on a blog before. Your book was delightful and got me through a very grim time in my life. Thank you for the laughs and I can relate to your kitchen triumphs and accidents. You write about daily stuff so well...
I also think that the iceman is very cool, but I am not thrilled about Brad Pitt. While I don't see why people would cancel their subscriptions over his tattoo or his "royal" invitation; I just can't see writing a letter over it.
Uptight fuckheads exist everywhere and I tried to convert them when I worked in customer service for a magazine and they would just freak out and cancel their subscriptions anyway. Brad Pitt gets way too much media attention--I don't buy it.
Great Blog, though.

Jen, the actor was David Strathairn.

So a coworker just told me today that Eric is your husband - I work in the Boston office. I've gotten quite a few angry letters about that magazine issue up here, and I think they're hilarious! Brad Pitt's tattoo is much more interesting than Bruce Willis' sweat-soaked "Die Hard" undershirt, featured in the latest Smithsonian mag.
