He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother



"Anyone who reads the pharmaceutical blogs and this e-newsletter each week knows about John Mack and Peter Rost. The exchanges between Mr. Mack, of the Pharma Marketing Blog and the Pharma Blogosphere, and Dr. Rost, of Question Authority and BrandWeek NRx, have been reminiscent sometimes of two brothers whaling away at each other in the backseat of the family car (and with some of their readers feeling like the parents in the front seat, wondering if they were going to have to turn around and say something, or ignore it and hope the bickering would soon stop)." -- Cristiane Truelove, Pharma Blogs: Week in Review

Do you think Christine meant "wailing", or have you really been throwing harpoons?

I give as good as I get or get as good as I give. I think that's a motto we all live by.

Christiane said...

It's American slang, according to my trusty Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, meaning to lash, thrash, or strike or hit vigorously.
