So, I’ve been working on something the past few days. Under the radar, as it were. On the QT. In secret. Down my pants.
Okay, okay — not that last thing. I was just saying.
Anyway, I’ve had a new feature in the works for a while — nothing spectacular, but it makes me giggle.
Here’s the thing — you know how otherwise uncool people put quotes on their blogs, to show how cool that cool people think their sites are? Yeah, well, I’m not doin’ that. Not exactly. Not with real people, anyway.
See, I’m not gonna pay, or lick, or otherwise cajole people to say nice things about this site. On the other hand, I do like to pretend that others are actually reading — and commenting about — my little baby here. So, I’m going to do what any red-blooded American guy would do — I’m gonna cheat. Cheat, cheat, cheat, then lie, then cheat some more. And then deny it all, and run for office. It’s the American way, don’t you know.
But first things first — and first is the cheating, so that’s what I’m gonna get down to right now. If I can’t get people to really say things about my site, then I’m gonna pretend that people are talking about me. And specifically, not just people — but the people. That’s right — the Simpsons.
So, from now on, whenever you come to the site, or even reload the page, you’ll see a new quote, straight from the Simpsons, that’s ostensibly about this site, or about me. Not actually about me, of course, and certainly not about my site, but ‘ostensibly’. And that’s what’s important. When you’re cheating, at least. Like me.
Anyway, look out for those quotes — I’ve been watching Simpsons episodes veeeeeery closely for the past couple of weeks, and I’ve culled a couple of quotes out of each. They’re not about me, naturally… but they could be. And who better to comment on this particular brand of boobery than a bunch of fictional animated screwballs, eh?
So, check it out. Maybe you’ll find your favorite quote up there, atop the recent posts. They’re all here, from ‘Hey! You’re not John Ritter!‘ to ‘You can cram it with walnuts, ugly!‘ And if you don’t see one you recognize, then just wait a couple of weeks. I’m watching the damned shows as fast as I can, you know. Be patient — or get busy cramming those walnuts yourself, there, Sparky. I’m a-gettin’ to it. Keep your pants on.Permalink | 1 Comment
