Left Behinds Gets Spanked By Veteran of the War in Afghanistan!

I am deeply humbled to report that JP, the "annoying and unnecessary" guy behind MILBlogging.com, has entertainingly attacked Left Behinds, prompted by a couple offhand comments I made earlier today.

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!

    Who knew christmas would bring you some soldier love? And he sounds kinda cute too. This is Neda Cole reporting for duty sir.

    Hilarious that his butch cheerleader thinks Left Behinds has enough readers to be editing away comments. ;)

    Are you talking about ME being a butch cheerleader? Very nice. And here I updated saying that Solomon has a good sense of humor and I was sorry that it didn't come across on his blog. Oh, and that I didn't want things to devolve into name-calling, but I guess I should have checked here first, huh? Since you don't know the first thing about me, that bit of snarkiness is quite rich.

    mmm.. i read your comments, saw your photo, and read the past few days of your blog? You recognised yourself, and i have to say that if you're insulted by that then you have a huge identity crisis - you're like the butchest woman i've come accross since they stopped showing episodes of 'Prisoner Cell Block H' on TV.

    In my world that's not necessarily an insult however, and i certainly hadn't meant to tickle your sensibilities. All the cursing women with tattoos that I know would have taken it as a compliment! My humble apologies ma'am, you're clearly a nice enough gal and a single mother, for which i have nothing but respect.

    Perhaps your scathing homophobic references to my co-blogger were also meant with tongue-in-cheek love, in which case i suggest we resheath our daggers and open a couple of bottles of whatever your tipple might be. Martini anyone?

    Ha! Dagger resheathed. But they weren't homophobic references. Didn't make a connect to the gayness until after the comment was made. And my friend Isis says that butch cheerleader is oxymoronic. There are lipstick lesbian cheerleaders and butches, but the 2 concepts don't really go together. And just for you, I will post another picture so you can see that I can clean up nicely and tats and a Harley do not a butch make.

    Suddenly I feel like I'm in the first episde of Freaks and Geeks where the scrawny boy's big sister beats up his bullies. ;)

    You think my sense of humor doesn't come across on the blog? Hm, maybe not every post... I'll work on that... I think we've written some more lighthearted stuff, though. Like the 10 Worst Americans, or Facial Recognition Software, or What's Next for Intelligent Design.

    Oh and btw, yes, you clean up nicely. Heh.

    And incidentally, my pic was from Halloween 3 years ago. I don't normally wear makeup, but Neda turned me into her doll that night...

    I never watched Freaks and Geeks, but I can appreciate your friend coming to your defense. I do the same, especially for JP as I'm sure you've noticed. He's taken a beating from people who have no sense of satire and sarcasm. Thanks for the compliment, but I must say this in case you don't get over to my place and see my reply to your comment, my alpha male boys are gonna have fits if they see your profile pic. LOL!! I'll try to find the time to read your archives. btw, I really like your introduction to yourself in your profile. Nicely turned phrases. ;)

    Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
