Another week, and more spam… one in the can (presented here), and another to come over the weekend. Today’s tale begins with a simple request to use your humble author’s humble blog as a springboard for advancing someone else’s agenda, and implying that they would gain permission to post it on my site. Really?
Here’s the opening salvo…
I move at the speed of a snail, so I got a second request, just a couple of days later…
Well, with that kinda pressure, I felt compelled to respond… and watch for a reappearance of the fighting nanobots!
Out of curiosity, why again do you think this would be appropriate for my site? I don’t remember having mentioning camping, but I’m such a mess — in over fifteen years of writing my blog, I coulda said anything! To paraphrase my buddy Robby, “Questions! Questions!”
Looking at the website your email was sent from, it redirects to something called Kayak Critic run by a dude named Alex. I’m guessing there’s not really a website called thegreatoutdoorsfix.com … and that’s probably because Alex stole it! I looked at the Whois info for the fixable great outdoors domain, and it appears to be hiding in Panama somewhere, while Alex’s domain is in quiet, steamy Arizona. It’s a long, long way from Panama to Arizona, but I’d bet someone whose charter seems to be to fix the great outdoors could muster up the power of eagles to travel to Arizona to pop Alex right on the snoot!!
What do you know about camping with nanobots? I’ve got a whole league of them — The League of Fighting Nanobots! — and sometimes, they seem a little off their game. There’s a lot of pressure in the teeny weenie octagon, and I wonder if their constant training schedule — and all that battery charging! — causes them to get cross. I’ve lost a ton of Q-Tips breaking up itty bitty nanofights lately, and the cost is those is getting to be a drag! Any thoughts on how to survive a camping excursion with the itty bitties? And, where would be best to go with them? They produce an incredible amount of pollution given their size, and it’s not uncommon for me to have to post signage concerning their noxious output. Ever seen the camp fire bean sequence from “Blazing Saddles”? Well, if so, you get the idea.
(If not, you should watch it… Mel Brooks is a genius!)
I wish you well on your impending quest for Alex!
