Is It Shrill If I Link It?

I agree especially strongly with the last sentence of this. [UPDATE: This too. It's like I should have a permanent link to that website on my blog page.]

And what was I saying about Hugh Hewitt?

(Bonus question: What do this post and Renee Zellweger have in common?)

Yes, but shrill in a good way.

Like Renee Zellwegger, the post appears ugly on the surface but actually has its own kind of beauty.

Zellweger does not appear ugly on the surface! For a movie star, she's kind of funny looking, but if I knew her in real life I would surely think, "Wow, she's attractive." (I think I'm maintaining a studied silence as to whether I would then think, "But annoying.")

Good answer, though.

So, what DO this post (or that post) and Renee Zellwegger have in common? And why is a raven like a writing desk?

Their names have only one vowel each. The raven and writing desk are both named "Bob."

And "Bob" is univocalic, too! How about that! (Also uniconsonantal.)
