In this year’s (Sh)it List, I revealed my dislike for our tagline, “Scathing Reviews, Bitchy People,” but many of you came out in support. Others offered up a lot of great alternatives. So, we’re going to keep Scathing Reviews as the official tagline, but for the next few weeks (months), I thought we’d have some fun and use a lot of the alternate suggestions in the masthead. This week’s comes from TrickyHD.
