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

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