Please Welcome Mr. Brink as Our New Sunday Contributor

We've been following Mr. Brink's hilarious and insightful comments on the blog for years now and so we've decided to graduate him up to the main page of the site as a regular contributor on Sundays.

Consider him our Sunday Show Moderator -- the George Stephanopoulos of the blog. That is, if Stephanopoulos was funny and not prone to softball questions. Also, I've never met Mr. Brink, but I understand he's better looking than Stephanopoulos. Plus, "Mr. Brink" is an easier name to spell and type. On second thought, they're nothing like each other. Never mind.

Welcome, Mr. Brink! We're honored to have you aboard.

  • MrDHalen

    Glad to see you’ll be adding to the AWESOMENESS on this site!!!! Congrats!!!

  • Bubble Genius

    I’ll bet Mr. Brink doesn’t spend half as much time with a blow – uh – DRYER as Georgie Porgie does.

    Welcome seems wrong, since you’re a familiar face here. But welcome!

    Hey-O! I’m stoked to see Mr. Brink is gonna be posting here — especially since I recently stopped finding time to read the comments here , which have long been punctuated with his hilarious, inciteful, scathing, and generally thought-provoking writing. Also, too: I suggested this move in the comments years ago shortly after Ashby moved to the front page — so I don’t mind saying, great idea!!!

  • mrbrink

    Thanks, you guys. I’m not cool enough to pretend this isn’t a big deal. I’m still waiting for the cease and desist letter.

    …have always enjoyed Mr. Brink’s musings, insights, “opines” as well as writing style and ability to “toss snark”…grins…

    …major kudos…☺

  • mrbrink

    Thank you, Bob. But we all know George Stephanopoulos is just in it for his looks. I’m just in it for his looks, too, but at least I can keep my eyes up here, buddy!

  • nicole

    Mr. Brink!! Congrats! :)

    • mrbrink

      If I was stranded on an island, I’d still find a way to remind you how awesome you are.

      • nicole

        Oh hell, I adore you, Brink!

  • Amy Stone

    Excellent. Mr. Brink is one of the best commentors on the blog.

  • i_a_c

    This is awesome. Congratulations Sr. Brink. Well deserved.

  • IrishGrrrl

    Excellent! A Sunday Special, as it were

  • Brutlyhonest

    Great news! This will allow Mr. Brink to expose himself to even more readers. Or something like that :p

  • muselet

    An excellent decision, Bob. (Incidentally, Mr. Brink and George Stephanopoulos are both carbon-based life forms, so they’re not that dissimilar, at least at a molecular level.)

    “I’d like to welcome the pommy bastard to God’s Own Earth, and remind him we don’t like stuck-up stickybeaks here!”


    • IrishGrrrl

      I always wanted to know what “pommy” meant.

    • mrbrink

      Yeah! We don’t like no stuck-up stickybeaks here!

      • muselet

        And remember,

        Rule 6: There is NO … Rule 6.


        • IrishGrrrl

          Also, too. No pooftahs!
