Yes, the OESU can help with stilletos on their feet and an extra pair in their hands!
I wish I could tase everyone on Reuters responsible for the demise of this blog.

Hats off to you mate!

By: Onedoor Thu, 15 Dec 2011 00:53:28 +0000 I’d gladly wear stilettos.
and next to badgers fight;
I’d stomp on toes and wring their nose
all throughout the night.
I’d pass the plate of doughnuts,
for this worthy cause.
Oh, please give us the OE Blog
Mr. Reuters Santa Claus!

I really like everyone on the blog; that means you, too, George!

By: jclimacus081 Wed, 14 Dec 2011 21:33:06 +0000 @ifly: Sadly, desperate times call for desperate measures, so “Release the Badgers!” Rodents for the Blog! As the estimable Mr. Badger from Wind in the Willows says, “…we don’t want to teach them, no, we want to LEARN ’em. There’s a difference.” Think of it as the difference between me, or, you or anyone for that matter trying to rationally convince the chief Vogons at Reuters to reverse their ill-conceived notions, vs. our own beloved Shra with her special brand of electric persuasion. Well reason has not worked, so a more aggressive brand of negotation is now called for, so once again, I say, “Release the Badgers!!!” (and Shra, ‘fire at will!’ I say)

Stilettos? An OE Stiletto Unit? Intriguing idea! I admit my own knowledge of blog lore is deficient in this area.

By: iflydaplanes Wed, 14 Dec 2011 20:24:19 +0000 @jclimacus081..dude you are a genius! Why didn’t we think of it before? Get the UWAA in here to keep the blog going! Who at Reuters is dare going to challenge the UWAA? And to add some extra might to the cause we need the Oddly Enough Stiletto Unit to form again! Come one everyone, one last charge for the OE blog!

By: CrowGirl Wed, 14 Dec 2011 20:06:45 +0000 Aw, thanks jclimacus. :)

I’d vote for the Scissors, Paper, Stone Party. It’s how we settle disputes between me and the boss at work.

By: jclimacus081 Wed, 14 Dec 2011 19:38:00 +0000 @ Spin, “rubber chicken” is a cheap modernization which hacks such as myself resort to in a pinch. The original Shakespeare would have been the “false fowl of flaggelation” used in the long lost 156th sonnet, which unfortunately is too smeared with barbeque sauce to read. As far as “offering him up”,sure why not if the caue is right? I too had a rubber chicken by my side, until Mr. Spam Filter confiscated him. I think its in the custody of non-081 down in the dunge–er, I mean the cafeteria 😛

By: 69Spinster Wed, 14 Dec 2011 19:07:22 +0000 @jclimacus: Wow! That is amazing.
Were the words “rubber chickens” part of the original Shakespeare?

BTW, there is a rubber chicken sitting next to me in the office. Should I offer him up for the effort?
