The importance of…Have I used this headline before?
It’s summer, Blog Guy, and that means lots of funny local competitions. I hope you’re monitoring those for your readers.
Wait Blog Guy, I think this was that Ernest Hemingway lookalike contest that they have down there. They hold it every year at Sloppy Joe’s Bar.
You always write about it, and you always use the same headline, “The Importance of Being Ernest.”
Are you kidding me? Those guys are supposed to look like Hemingway? No way.
That one guy could pass for that singer Kris Kristofferson. Another one looks like the actor Robert Prosky… But Ernest Hemingway? I don’t think so.
Not so fast. That IS still a pretty good headline…
