O.C. Register vs. O.C. Weekly: Prissy Meets Snarky

croppetessr.jpgThe Orange County Register‘s Pedro (aka Peter Larsen) reviews the latest book by the OC Weekly‘s Mexican (aka Gustavo Arellano) by mostly pointing out all the ways in which his rival is a whiny little bitch.

Why do we get the sense Pedro enjoyed this bashing a little too much? (Though, we do give him props for pointing out the errors in Arellano’s book with a link to this. Clever stuff, Pedro. But where are your manners?
