I'm afraid that is incorrect.

You know what they call you mother?  Nomad Camp.  Because... well, I'll let you think about it.

Because she always gives you an extra buy on your next turn unless she collides with a more useful terminal?

For $4 she'll get on top of your deck immediately.  Kirian's was hilarious too, though.

The answer is Sir Bailey's, btw.  Or rather, the question was "What is Sir Bailey's?" or something.

According to the Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge, it's straightforward to put each Dominion card into one of 14 categories:

Those that are in Seaside
Those that are frequently trashed
Those that do what you expect
Remodels costing $3 or less
Villages (or Throne Rooms)
Outtakes
Promos
Those that are included in this classification
Those that make you tremble
Those that have more than 10 copies
Those illustrated by Alayna Lemmer
Et cetera
Those that you just lost a game by counting on
Those that are used in memes

A forum that prides itself on explaining jokes, and nobody explains the Jorge Luis Borges joke that actually needs it? For shame, f.ds, for shame.

Aww, I had assumed Donald had just made this up.  There's a little bit of Borges in his wit, actually.

Heh, I assumed it was an intentional parody. But you're right--something about the deadpan statements that seem reasonable in structure but at a second glance reveal intentional absurdity?

Donald X plays the long game.  I love what the card names spell.  No-one bought the official explanation for "Candlestickmaker", right?
