How am I supposed to compete with this?
Jeez Blog Guy, what’s the matter with you? I’ve never seen you looking so upset.
Oh, it’s just this Pat Robertson thing. You know, where he said Haiti has been cursed because they made a deal with the devil 200 years ago.
Yeah, I saw that. It was a pretty stupid thing to say.
Whatever. It’s not what he said, it’s where he said it. I had to go and read about it in the Reuters FaithWorld Blog!
I mean, when somebody says something THAT looney, I should have it first in my blog. How am I supposed to compete with imbecility on that magnitude?
I hear what you’re saying. Why do you think they got to use it in that religion blog instead of your humor blog?
Because of two words. When somebody says something, no matter how asinine, and then ends it as Robertson did by saying, “True story,” then they get to put it in a serious news blog.
Wait. So you mean not all the stuff in your blog is true?
Excuse me for a moment. Oh look, Lady Gaga is out front picking through my garbage can. True story!
