This is the first post in a thread that is dedicated to self-reference.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Though they valiantly try to turn the thread to something intelligible, the self-referential posts never seem able to get over themselves.

I'd like to take the time to respond to this post, but I've got a lot of important things to do right now.

This post claims that it magnificently accomplishes both self-reference and self-reverence, but it is mistaken.

What in the blazes are you all talking about? Are you all insane? Am I stupid or drunk? All of the above?

My post can not be mistaken due to the intention in which it was written...but it could be mistaken by the reader who read it incorrectly thereby mistaking my intent.

This sentence expresses amusement at Josh's sentence's success in being self-referential and its simultaneous failure in telling the truth.
