Pointless incessant barking

This was my favorite cartoon of the week (actually it was in last week's New Yorker).

Believe me, I am well aware that attempting to warn the public against eternally popular hardy perennials like Dan Brown or Strunk and White through Language Log posts is perilously close to pointless incessant barking. But one does what one can. Arf! Arf!
