Wells' newest monologue is posted on UD here:

Somehow Wells manages to mis-quote Meyers.

He writes:
Quote
In case you think this is just a dry scientific dispute, Myers also wrote: “Wells is… [an] unctuous rodent who earns the contempt of every man who meets him.

If you're familiar with Wells and with Deadwood, you know what I mean. You'll just have to imagine that I am Al Swearingen, the brutal bar-owner who uses obscenities as if they were lyric poetry, while Wells is E.B. Farnum, the unctuous rodent who earns the contempt of every man who meets him.


i.e. "imagine Wells is a well known character who's a real jerk, and I'm a well known character who swears, and you can imagine what I'd say"  vs. "Wells is a [...] real jerk".

Nice.
