Brussels sprout farmers, you are under arrest!

October 23, 2009

Blog Guy, I’ve heard a very disturbing rumor about you. Please say it isn’t true.

It’s a complete lie! What is it, anyway?

That after a couple of years of blogging about stuff you dislike, you’re finally making your move.

Oh, that. Yeah, we’re starting out slow. The Odd Blog police are rounding up some bad clowns and some bad fashion designers. The photos must have gotten out.

My God! Oh, the humanity! Where do you go from here?

Figure it out. It’s all there if you go back through my old postings. Soon they’ll be picking up brussels sprout farmers, gyrocopter pilots, folks who put clothes on dogs, Barry Manilow

But where will you even put all those people while they await trial?

Not a problem. I expect to have plenty of empty bullfighting rings to lock them up in….

You’re a madman! The people will rebel! They will resist you!

Not after they see now nice life is without brussels sprouts and bullfighters, they won’t.

Skirt?… Miniature Schnauzer?… Please God, please, don’t let those be metaphors. None of us will ever recover….
