lesson of the week: in which i lecture on blog etiquette to an absolute moron.

If you're following me on Twitter...

WHAT? You're not following me yet? Come ON people. The month is one-third over. I need your help here.

You may have seen my tweet about my Very Special Visitor, Anonymous Troll-type Person. Or Jackass. I'm just tossing that out there so you have a choice in the matter. Choose away.

My VSVATTP/J did some digging... all the way back to March of last year, long before most of you experienced the enlightenment that is the dayton time. Or whatever it is I've got going on here.

And it must be that my VSVATTP/J has not ever encountered a Mama Bloggah before, because this is his/her response to a post about the barfing flu:

umm gross... y would u make a blog about this?

VSVATTP/J, there are a few things we need to discuss if you are going to be allowed to "make a comment" on the dayton time.

1. The usage of text message slang is prohibited at the dayton time.
2. My entire blog, contrary to what you may have read between the months of November, 2008 and April, 2009, is not all about the barfing flu.
3. The little bit you read? It's called a post. Here's a little SAT analogy for you: post is to blog as chapter is to book. Does that clear things up for you a little bit? No? As I re-read your highly intelligent commentary, it occurs to me that you may have never read a book. And that's okay. If you're two days old.
4. You make potholders. And birdhouses. One does not make a blog.
5. The usage of text message slang is prohibited at the dayton time.

And despite being whatever it is that my VSVATTP/J was after reading that post, he/she KEPT ON READING.

Yes, I'm scratching my head over that one, too.

This post? Was a review of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. No, I didn't get paid to do it, I just reviewed the thing because I expected it to suck, and it lived up to my expectation.

Friend? Poop only has 2 o's. And the comment with the three dots? What does that even mean?

This last comment (if you're counting, we're up to FOUR comments by my VSVATTP/J now) shows that VSVATTP/J has fallen right off the silly wagon into a vat of stupid.

The post was short, so have a quick read:

re: why?
The decision to keep Jayci Yaeger's dad in jail raised a lot of attention, and prison officials let him visit with his daughter earlier this week. It was a short visit, and Jayci passed away Friday morning, March 28th.

Join me in saying a prayer (or two) for this family, and for the myriad other families around the world who are separated from the ones they love and are suffering, because no matter what the cause of the separation and suffering, it's just plain awful.

And kids don't need to know about either one.

heyy u should send that girl some pickles and send me,anonymous some cash haha jk

My dear VSVATTP/J, you truly are a jackass. I cannot send that girl some pickles because she is dead. And they don't FedEx pickles to heaven. Also? I'm not sending pickles out any more. Please know that if you choose to return to my blog and leave comments that reveal your level of jackassery to my readers, you will be mocked. So be sure to bring your big boy pants. Or your big girl pants, if you're into that sort of thing. We embrace everyone here, except for the obviously stupid. Have a nice day.


  1. y can't we use txt msg slang on ur blog??

  2. Ugh. I hate trolls. But at least you have a good sense of humor about the whole thing.

  3. Sounds like someone who thinks they are more clever and witty than they really are...obviously not struggling with the burden of intelligence!

    "Vat of stupid" - copyright that, Pamela!

  4. I always love a good laugh in the morning!

    Some people just don't get it! That is all I will say about that one!

    Happy day my dear...Kara

  5. WTF?!



  6. Some of you are treading on thin ice, and I think you know who you are.

  7. People who refuse to reveal themselves are stupid! Ball up, man up, woman up, whatever the hell you are up, and reveal yourself! Geez!

    I think they don't reveal themselves because they know they're incomptetant of being remotely intelligent or logical, so they're afraid that if people actually knew who they were, they'd be disgraced publically! Wuss!

  8. I'm sorry, I'm too busy laughing over line about sending pickles to heaven (even your's Pamela, probably can't match what is supposed to be available there, right?).

  9. *shakes head* Wow. You have to wonder about some people.

    You should mail anonymous a bunch of pickles, especially if you have some leftover that you might have touched, or better yet licked during that brief barfing period.
