Left Behinds Gets Spanked By Veteran of the War in Afghanistan!
He begins by saying that Left Behinds "looks like some third-grade school project written by some Marilyn Manson-looking blogger named Solomon Grundy, a childhood friend of Cindy Sheehan, and a few other contributors." Then he undoes his trousers and remarks that "Unless you’re a Hillary Duff fan blogging about your newest Hillary Duff makeup kit or poster, or you like to blog about pretty flowers, nobody, and I mean nobody, is going to believe you purposely chose that color for your blog."
Here's my reply
HA! We only started blogging a couple weeks ago, so it's such an honor to already be flamed by one of the big boys. Spank me harder, daddy!
Sorry to get your knickers in a twist by calling you "unnecessary and annoying," but your post on MSM bias was kinda strident and predictable. If you had been half as viciously clever there as you were when verbally spanking me, it would have been much more entertaining. But everybody's allowed an off day. :)
For the record, the hot pink is meant to be a campy reappropriation of "pinko" and "fag." Oh and, duh, we never deleted any comments. We only get like 130 uniques a day (remember, we're a brand new blog), so we're grateful for whatever feedback we get! Someone deleted their own comment on the milblog post. No hard feelings, even though my bright pink left buttcheek still stings! That's quite a slap you've got, soldier. But I kinda enjoyed it.
and here's his gracious reply:
Solomon, if your claim to blog-stardom is receiving a roast by me, then, you must be doing something wrong. Nice call, though. Your comment even got a laugh out of me. Usually I would be preparing something more like: "I tried swallowing my tongue while watching Harry Potter with my 4-year old", but I've leave it alone (for now). Thanks for not reading too much into my blog though: it's funny, you're one of the first writers to take a beating, and be gracious about it. Unfortunate, I was hoping to get a good battle of the wits going. Oh well, thanks for commenting.
That was the healthiest romance I've had all year!
