News, but not the serious kind
10,000 strange and dangerous people…
Hey Blog Guy, what’s with the big grin on your face?
Great news. My Facebook Blog Network just hit 10,000 members, which is a pretty big deal. I guess that’s just about everybody on the Internet.
Hearty congratulations, Blog Guy! What did you do to celebrate?
We had a gala formal party under a tent. People strutted in their finery.
There were goat races. Sumo wrestlers lined up to high-five me. The Eagles played live and there was a telegram from Mamie Eisenhower…
The King of England was there, and Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, and designer Donatella Versace….
Reuters gave me an almost-new new car, the Facebook folks sent me a gold Rolex…
Blog Guy, get yourself a fricking grip. There isn’t even a King of England. Mamie Eisenhower died in 1979. There was no gala party for you. Nobody cares.
What? No goat races then? No Eagles? No sumo high-fives or finery?
Only in your mind.
But you can see me and Donatella…
That’s just an old photo you keep trotting out. It’s really sort of sad.
Yeah? Well then, we’ll just see what happens when I hit 20,000 members!
