It's kind of like hearing the words, "No offense, but," Um, yeah, you know you are about to hear something that is going to totally offend you, but the offender now has the right to say it because he prefaced this comment with, "No offense."
I was telling this observation to my dad this weekend, and he said, "Yeah, it's the crap filled Twinkie. You sugar coat the crap with the nice spongy cake so that you don't sound as hurtful. The crap filled Twinkie is closely related to the crap filled Oreo, in which the offender says, "You know I love you, but... (insert offensive comment here)...but you know I love you right?
I thought the descriptions of the crap filled Oreo and Twinkie were pretty funny, and had to be shared here. If you're still reading, go ahead and say it! Bless your heart Tami, you know I love you, but your blog really sucks!--No offense!
