Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Ever felt like "the invisible man" whilst posting on a long-running and vitally important Mudcat thread like this one? I have. That's why I descend to gratuitously insulting Rap and Amos frequently, and doing other things that annoy them or get their attention, like posting McGonagall poems in Amos's case, for instance. It helps to know what pushes their buttons if you are desirous of a response of some kind. Of course, that's true with everyone. It even works with me. ;-) I have been known to react to certain predictable stimuli from time to time.
The very worst, in this sense, are the political argument addicts. You want their attention? You want a response? Say something bad about Obama! Say something good about Obama. Say anything about Obama. Anything at all. Even if it's true! ;-) Works every time, absolutely without fail. All the usual bells will ring, all the usual political warriors will charge, raving, onto the field of battle, guns a-blazing!
Chongo dreams of being in the same dire spot that Obama is in. He can be a very foolish ape at times! I wouldn't change places with Obama for any number of dates with Winona Ryder...though...I might briefly be somewhat tempted to, I suppose. But, hey, I'm not a complete idiot.
But at age 27, I'd probably have gone for it....although Winona would have been too young then...
Okay, I mean just hypothetically. Capiche?
