Voting in the Canadian Blog Awards for Best Humour Blog ends… well, I’m not sure, but sometime either late today or tomorrow at the absolute latest. If you have not voted, vote! If you have voted, vote again from a different computer or something! Hold rallies! Petition your local mayoral office to hold an official MGK Jamboree Day!1 Floss with official MGK Brand Dental Floss!2
Same deal as always applies: you may request a post on something or whatever in exchange and I will definitely consider thinking about writing something vaguely in connection to your request. (Actually, a good deal of next week’s postery resulted from previous requests, mostly because I’m hitting crunch time at school and am too busy to come up with anything original or interesting on my own. WE ALL BENEFIT!)
If you are looking for a truly ringing site review, consider James Bow’s roundup, wherein he explains that I “post funny videos,” says that Skippy of Enjoy Every Sandwich is a “young and energetic young woman” (not only making sure to emphasize that Skippy is young, but also a different gender than I thought Skippy was), mischaracterizes the Useless Men as “essayists” rather than advice columnists, and claims that Mitchieville is a “good read.” In fairness, Bow did correctly point out that Noise to Signal is a web comic, presumably by using the power of sight. So, you know, one out of five, that’s better than George Bush is doing these days, amirite?
Also, I encourage all readers to heartily ignore Skippy’s hate-filled diatribes, wherein he grossly and falsely accuses me of being seventy thousand people or something because I am polite and give my past guest contributors who are welcome to add more content to my site whenever they wish (which is not often) a nice tribute by associating them with me as pointedly as I can do. Honestly, it is my life’s goal to become the number one Christopher Bird on the web, and surpass the guy who wrote The Secret Life Of Plants.
(True story: back when I first got onto Usenet in 1993, I used to get one or two emails a month from people asking if I was that Christopher Bird. This persisted until about 1998. Those of you who read the Wikipedia article will note that the other Christopher Bird died in 1996. You may draw your own conclusions as to whether this means that people are innately stupid or innately optimistic or both.)
In conclusion: as P. Diddy once said, “vote or die.”3
- Do not emulate the example of those people in Schnectady. I still get angry letters about the fatalities. Like it’s my fault they gave the kids broken-glass pinatas. I didn’t even endorse that company! [↩]
- “Sometimes you must fight the crocodile that is gingivitis!” [↩]
- Hey, does anybody else remember 720? The skateboarding videogame? “Skate… OR DIE!” God, that was a great game. They should remake it with P. Diddy, if only to see him get attacked by killer bees. [↩]
