Lurker Alert!!!!

(cue Star Trek "INTRUDER ALERT" noises)

Lately, we've been attracting attention from our pals in the HowdareyouchallengemypatriotismIjustwantevilAmerikkkanEmpiretodie types. Not LB Buddy---he's a pacifist, but he's extremely sincere and old school. Plus, he's a wanted war criminal for crimes against the zebra fish American community. If zebra fish ever get an ICC, he's screwed. So we cut him a lot of slack.

However, though, there are others who we'll be a wee bit less charitable with. Just as 5000 is the new 1000 (the daily traffic to be at the bottom of the "bigs"), you're not really a big league blogger until you start scoring the seriously ugly hate mail.

So I guess we've arrived.

Now, we've always gotten hate mail from folks who happened upon us and thought we were some site devoted to cruelty to LLamas or other fuzzy creatures. Now, sure, Apalcas are cute in that sort of Bambi sort of way, but once you've been spit at once by a LLama, the gloves are off. Anyhoo, we've always dealt with these folks the time honored manner---obsequious mockery.

Anyhow, tougher time demand stronger medicine. So we've had to resort to stiffer stuff:

I love that! Where did you find it? And how did Rob approve of it? It smacks of the forbidden emoticon.

He's putting me in a dress again, fer pete's sake! Think he'd listen to what I say?

Oh, that's great! I'll echo Jen: where did you get that?

Now that is truly inspired.

Been saving it up for the day Robbo's threat to use pshop became to be real.

In memory of Sean Connery's grizzled mick sgt. in The Untouchables, "they put one of yours in the hospital, you put one of theirs in the grave. it's the chicago way."

I love the way he turns "Chicago" into a four-syllable word in that scene.

So yes, been saving a few tricks.......

Let the fun commence.

Plus, there's something vaguely obscene about the dancing "THPFFFT" I don't know exactly what, but it makes me feel all funny.

"Plus, there's something vaguely obscene about the dancing "THPFFFT""
