Patton Oswalt and Salon go together like Constable Bob and Yolo. Last July, Oswalt got into a fight with the “progressive news website” (haha) over a joke he made about Asiana Flight 214, and now, like old lovers who spend their days plotting the other’s demise, they’re back at it again, feudin’ and fussin’ over #CancelColbert. It’s pretty much got everything you’d want in an online argument: references to The King of Queens. That’s it. All Twitter fights should mention The King of Queens.

Anyway, in this corner, you have Oswalt. In that corner, Salon.com writer Mary Beth Williams.
