Every blogger knows the feeling: you read or here about something which is getting a lot of attention, but think that the whole thing is just stupid and a waste of time and energy. A good recent example might be the kosher-certified gas station in New Jersey. Everybody wants to talk about it, but it’s really just not worth it. You feel like you should mention it in the blog, but, on the other hand, you think it demeans your blog to even mention it.

Allow me to unsheathe the way to address these annoying topics: the TSTBA link. TSTBA stands for “too stupid to blog about”. When you run across s/t which is just SO stupid but you just HAVE to blog about it, you put up a one word post: TSTBA – with a link to the offending news item. Like so: TSTBA
