P.S.

If you want to be super-ultra witty and totally "with it," then you have to use the ultimate in witty comeback prefixes: P.S.

Now, "P.S." is shorthand for "Post Script." Which means it comes after something already written; in speech it means it comes after something already said.

For example:

Tom: Elron Hubbard totally kicks ass! P.S. Katie Holmes is a total babe.

--OR--

Mo: I talked to God and He said that you should all listen to me because I'm totally awesome. P.S. Kill all Jews.

--OR--

The Cobra: This Quiz Totally Kicks Ass. P.S. Rockel likes boys.

This infinitely amazing language application can be used in tandem with another individuals "P.S."

For Example:

The Cobra: This Quiz Totally Kicks Ass. P.S. Rockel likes boys.
Frank: P.S. that is so last week.
Bob: P.S. Rockel's so gay he tatooed a rainbow on his forehead.
The Cobra: P.S. Bob likes Rockel's rainbow.

In order to cement this totally rockin' literary phenomenon I will present you with this completely inappropriate and wholly malicious use of the "P.S."

Lloyd: P.S. I'm an auto-mechanic.

You see how that doesn't work?!?! He didn't say anything first to constitute the need for a postscript. This faux pas could have totally been avoided had this taken place:

Lloyd: Hi. P.S. I'm an auto-mechanic.

So, ladies and gentlemen, consider yourself enlightened in the ways of modern english. I'm sure this lesson has been informative and that you all payed very close attention because there will be a quiz later.

P.S. I can't believe how much I rule.

There can only be one post script, so make it count. Once it has been used, there only remains a post post script, and so forth... and so on... ps - chicken is yummy.
