Oh, internet tone

I am sure you are too busy to read the Best Week Ever blog, but as for me, an erstwhile American expat hoping to ease himself back into society, I find BWE blog an invaluable tool. Without it, how would I ever have heard about Nicole Richie?
Anyway, it is occasionally hilarious and an admirable parody in motion of the contemporary internet, as in this line from a post about a lawsuit against Alan Iverson's entourage for beating up some guy in a strip club.
"The jury found that [Iverson posse member Jason] Kane was liable for assaulting Godfrey, who was awarded $250,000 for pain and suffering and $10,000 for his medical bills. Iverson was found negligent for failing to supervise Kane." Apparently, members of your entourage must be supervised on a strict "Lennie from Of Mice and Men" policy, meaning Iverson must now rectify the situation by telling Kane about the rabbits and shooting him (literary spoiler alert!)
