stirrin' the pot

At the Helen blog-meet, I asked a simple question: "Have any of you ever written a post KNOWING that you were gonna piss a lot of people off, and then did it just to see HOW MANY people you could piss off?" Most people shook their heads and said, "no...."

Damn! I was surprised. Of course, I knew that these guys would shout "HELL YEAH!" in unison, and they did. They may be yankees, but they think a lot like I do (and I mean that with all the non-gay love I can muster for yankees). Geoff and Gordon share my motto: "Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke."

I confess. A lot of what I write is designed to stir the pot. I want people to REACT, whether they agree with what I write or not. If I make you laugh or make you think or just plain chap your ass, my mission is accomplished. I got a reaction. Always remember that fact when you read me, and think about it when you blog.

I'd rather be hated than ignored.


Since I found your blog I've also bought Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion stock. I use so much of it after I read you and it makes it so much easier to put on my jeans or even sit down that I figured "Why not?"

I also bought some Visine stock. On account of the occasional retina burns.

And then there are those of us who are not at ALL surprised by this little confession.

Most of them said "No"? (oO) Where's the fun in that?

Hell... it's entertaining to whack a yellow-jackets nest with a stick on occassion and see if you can duck the wasps. ;]
