You know what really irks? It's when you're writing an essay on Algernon Charles Swinburne, and in your wanderings round the world-wide-webble, you learn that Oscar Wilde allegedly described Algernon Charles Swinburne as “a braggart in matters of vice, who had done everything he could to convince his fellow citizens of his homosexuality and bestiality without being in the slightest degree a homosexual or a bestializer,” and this would be the most excellent alleged allegation in the world for the purposes of your essay, except that though the www has over three hundred instances of this purported Wildeanism, not one of them tells you where or when Wilde allegedly said what he allegedly did say, and so you could cite the alleged Wilde quotation in your essay, but you would have to accompany it with a whopping big disclaimer, and a glaring gap where the comments about to whom or why or when Wilde said what he allegedly said should be. Meanwhile, you have spent the last two hours checking every darn database in town. To No Avail.
Happily, however, I just checked the letterbox, and it turns out that after two years of diligently swiping my FlyBuys card, I am now entitled to a $20 voucher.
