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.
