After last week’s Question of the week (what are the worst pick up lines you can think of?) I got a lot of responses. Being a responsible Question-asker, I field tested them and can report that they are all, in fact, terrible.
Okay, that’s a lie. Some of them I couldn’t even consider for finalists because they were just disturbing. It’s a sad, lonely world, isn’t it? But then sometimes it’s a great world, because we can laugh about things and post them online and win attention and prizes! Hurray!
First off, the winner of last week’s finalists regarding the button you’d most like to see added to WordPress posts was supplied by Angie Z of Childhood Relived. The button you’d like to see?
“I didn’t read this whole post but I know it’s been a while since I stopped by and I don’t want you to think I don’t read or like you anymore.”
Very nice. Sometimes I think we have the equivalent already, called the “comment that relates to what the title makes it sound like the post is about, but it’s not,” but this would be far more efficient and straightforward.
So, congratulations Angie Z! Not only are you my featured blogger for the week, but WordPress should be contacting you shortly with that job offer. Hold out for a corner office in WordPress World Headquarters.
Before voting for this week’s finalists, two quick things:
1. Boy, the Facebook IPO… that was not a bang but a whimper, wasn’t it? People were watching that like a tennis match – live “How Rich is Zuckerberg Now?” updates and such… all so the stock could end the day right where it started. Poor Mark Zuckerberg. Still only worth 20 billion dollars.
2. If you read my post yesterday before 4pm or so, you may have become concerned that I’d suffered some sort of head trauma. I’ve never had a post with that many typos. There’s never been a blog post with that many typos. Spambots have better grammar than yesterday’s post. There were two typos in the title, for God’s sake. Two. In the title. I’m fine, but, apparently I was more tired than I thought this week. I must have read over it 8 times yesterday and at no point did I not find at least one more typo. There’s probably more, if you want to go on an easter egg hunt. In any case, horrifying. Sorry.
Okay, I suggest trying out these pick-up lines before voting, to see what kind of reaction you get. Or, if you’re one of those people who’s “weird” about getting punched and/or arrested, you can just vote for the one you like best.
