IRISH, EH? WELL, THAT EXPLAINS THE ALCOHOLISM. 

The March 2004 issue of The Rake has an acerbic review of American Sucker, the latest memoir by cyber-onanist, NyQuil junkie, and New Yorker film critic David Denby. (Query: Which of those sins gets you into the deepest circle of hell?) The review is worth reading on its merits, but its most curiosity-piquing aspect is its author, Daniel A. Brennan. Who is Daniel A. Brennan, you ask? Well, the print version of the review (though, strangely, not the online one) tells us that Mr. Brennan "contributes to The Minor Fall, The Major Lift--our favorite New York blog."

Contributes? Are we to believe that TMFTML's seemingly royal "we" is in fact a literal one? I'm skeptical. Then again, Daniel A. Brennan is one busy man, what with inventing the award-winning Grill-n-Chill®, getting arrested on August 14, 2002 for an open container violation on Ocean Boulevard in Hampton, New Hampshire, and recently celebrating his 164th birthday. So who knows.

(Answer: Writing multiple memoirs.)
