Recently, in a well-intentioned attempt at shirking my blogging responsibilities, I posted what I thought to be a fairly funny picture and invited the many and beloved readers of this blog to offer up their own individual takes on my lovely, hand laser-printed artistic creation.

Used Author - Cheap!

“Exhibit A”

As an afterthought, keeping in mind that it is a busy season for many, I added a short list of links to certain humor-blogs community members, carefully selected on the basis of the following strict criteria:

  • Bloggers who recently commented on OC posts.
  • Bloggers who once commented on OC posts and have subsequently decided they can no longer stand the torment of communicating with me.
  • Bloggers I had previously bookmarked as being relevant to my particular humor niche.

As I was finishing my post, I left my cursor hovering above the publish button as I thought to myself,

“This is an awfully short list, I sure hope no one reads too much into it. I would hate for anyone to assume for instance, that these few people have achieved Most Favored Reader status, or that my regular readers are humor-impaired and I have to call in specialists for an operation of this complexity, or that at this point in the work-blog-sleep cycle I am more than just barely conscious.”

But then I yawned savagely, clicked the button, and went bed.

Upon reviewing today’s comments, my keen sense of English literacy and pistitudal perception reveal to me that I may have made a slight miscalculation in ignoring my semi-comatose concerns.

After an emergency session with my not-as-former-as-I-would-like analyst, Doctor Harold Toboggans, I have been persuaded that the only remedy for my current dilemma is an experimental new treatment of the doctor’s devising: Cathartic Implosion. Also known in certain less-desirable neighborhoods of Lower Albania under the name Confessional Blogiatrics.

Step Into The Light With Doctor Harold Toboggans

So in keeping with Dr. T’s alarmingly expensive psychiatric regimen, allow me to offer my humble and heartfelt apologies to:

John O

And all of the regular Little Comma contributors that I did not specifically call out by name in my ill-advised Invitation to Participation.

I also want to apologize to each and every one of the huddled masses who come to this site expecting to be treated better than this. I want you all to know that I am signing myself up for an extended course of Therapeutic Flogging at my local Toboggans Institute of Literary Disciple until I can develop the necessary sensitivity, most likely in the posterior regions, required of a high profile blogger like myself.

In addition, I would like to apologize to everyone involved in the following Link-Flock of Doom for privately smirking every time it descended upon an unwary,  freshly washed, blog.

I also want to apologize to my most recent history teacher for secretly muttering under my breath that he was “A real winner,” because that clearly wasn’t true.

And while I am at it, let me apologize to every last reality television show for publicly rooting for your swift demise.1

Happy Friday everyone.

I don’t know about you, but I feel all pringly inside.

  1. Of course, I am not really sorry, but I still have hope of getting my money’s worth from Toboggans.
