Who elses wants a pansteak? Get them while they’re hot! Get your pansteak!

You’re right about what the Blog Guy needs to do.

I heard that the marketing campaign for SARCASM almost really went awry until the marketing team wisely rejected this tag line:
SARCASM: As if you’d really want to wear this stuff.

It’s time to get serious with your life, just like Paris did with hers…

I applaud you on your excellent use of “flimflam”. Few are able to pull that off so seamlessly. Bravo sir, bravo.

If I had to choose between Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, I would pick Katy Perry.

Evoke SARCASM
What would you rather do, eh?
Slap a vodka jug?

I’ll suggest a starter haiku, but I’m sure that you, @AllThatJazz, @FriscoJohn, and the other haiku-writing commenters will have some good ones to add:

Why try SARCASM?
Ornithologists wear it
And they’re the experts

Your dear Lamar would be immortalized forever in a doughnut-shaped bottle. Maybe closed with a cork. That you open by slapping the bottom.

I heard a commercial on the radio while I was in Dubai the other day, and I THOUGHT they said Kim Kardashian was going to be at the Dubai Mall – like it was a big deal – but I just chalked it up to a mis-interpretation, because surely that would be a sign of the apocalypse….
