Way back (in the year 2003,) we wrote The Dickification of the Western Female (inspired by Kim Du Toit’s Pussification of the Western Male.) Little did we know at the time that our post would in turn inspire another reply, A. Meeba’s The Genitalization Of The Western Amoeba:

Now, little clones in grade school are suspended for playing protozoa and Blue-green algae, paramecia and plankton, and all the other familiar variations of “good guy vs. bad guy� that helped them learn, at an early cellular age, what it was like to have decent amoebae hunt you down, because you were an edible organism. Now, amoebae are taught that violence is bad – that when a parasite breaks into your membrane, or threatens you in the local water drop, that the proper way to deal with this is to “give it what it wants�, instead of taking a hunt-and-seek protein to the rascal or absorbing it dead where it swims.

We’ve been told that A. Meeba, or people associated with it, are now blogging at ParrotLine. And as luck would have it, they’re writing about Dean Esmay (in a friendly, non-nuts kicking sort of way.) They’ve even got a Keyboard Kommando Hierarchy. So you should go check them out — we’re still recovering from the move and stuff.

Speaking of powerline (kinda-sorta)… there’s a great post on Atrios right now . Pajamaline ROFL!


And, that’s my Senator acting clueless about the PowerWanks. *sniff* I guess he has more important things on his mind right now.


I don’t think he was necessarily acting. I think this is a reality-check for the blog world: even the most famous blogging personalities are virtually unknown in the real world, and if they are, it’s for something else (Arianna Huffington, for example).

I think we have to face facts. As important as blogging seems from the epicentre, those outside the circle barely know we exist. We’ve got a lot of work to do before we’re as important as we are self-important.

But also: Powerline got bitchslapped lol.


Well, true. You should see the way people look at you if you confess spending any appreciable amount of time reading blogs. You’d think you’d just admitted wanking to online pr0n or something. *Gasp!* Oh, no! Now I know what they think “blog” means!


Exactly. Case in point: “pr0n” … 9 out of 10 people on the street would have no idea what that means. Uh, what does it mean?
