this is thrilling
I'm kinda bad about reading all of my email except for when I don't feel inspired to write. I found this one today:
Hi. I've been looking at your blog and I think you have a very good chance of getting listed at our blog directory, "High Class Blogs."
I encourage you to submit your site at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can. Not only do I think your blog will be approved, I
think you have a good chance of winning an award if you choose to
I almost fell out of my chair laughing at that message. I have TWO serious problems with it from the start--- first, who are these unknown, but obviously erudite people who decide WHAT is a high-class blog? Who died and left a vacancy in THEIR Supreme Court?
Second--- I DO NOT run a "high-class" blog. I post a lot, but I cuss, I write about fart-stories and I sometimes am unkind to wimmen. As I've said before... you have linkers, thinkers and stinkers in blogdom.
The linkers and thinkers are the "high-class" blogs. I'm a STINKER and I wouldn't have it any other way. I just wasn't born to the manor. "High Class" is out of my range.
I sent 'em a link anyway. What do I have to lose?
Who was it that said (something to the effect that)...
I would not join a club that would have me as a member.

Crap. Does this mean I'm gonna have to get dressed up to post here? I can't do it in my BVD's anymore?
I had to put on my specs and read it again. I thought you said high class broads and I was going to e-mail you to see how I could get an invite. But high class BLOGS? There ain't NONE. That's the fun part of blogs. Ain't a damn one of us who claims to be objective-we just say whatever pops in our feeble minds and don't worry about class-well INDIGO has class but thats the only one I know that does.
What do you have to lose? Your bandwidth?
Sounds like spammers or maybe link to internet pr0n. It could also be someone making up a blogroll to garner links to a nothing website. Sorta like joeuser.com. Check out truthlaidbear.com listings for top blogs by links. About ten or fifteen blogs at joeuser.com are around 150 for links, but they all have the same number of links, and the blogs themselves are very uninteresting. I think they just created a daisy chain of links to get high on the list. I'm sure few if any people read them...just like my blog.
It was Groucho Marx.
High Class - My Ass!
I got it too. Deleted it along with the other spam.
"They said you was High-class... well, that was just a lie!"
I've been visiting here for a while now and I think you're very high class:) Course I just got done watching the news and my dog taking a dump looked high class at the time.
I got the same invite, but I looked at mine more closely, and it was asking me to join something called "Wipe-Ass Blogs."
But I didn't. It's a real pain in the ass getting the shit off'n my monitor.
Gut Rumbles a "High Class Blog"? That almost made me split a gut. Bejus wept.
A sign I once saw in a bar:
THIS IS A HIGH CLASS JOINT.
