ShinolaAh dear readers, how I wish I was making a witty reference to the Monty Python skit, or the hit Broadway show!

Alas, this is not the case.

What began with an odd case of alphabetical, nonsense comments with drug titles turned into some rather interesting…..shall we say…..suggestions on what one might do with one’s body if one were so inclined and had the appropriate equipment or consenting partner.

If you get my drift.

Or, as Eric Idle would say, “Eh, eh..nudge, nudge…wink, wink…know what I mean, know what I mean?”

And so, if you were met by any of that sort of thing on your visit to Emergiblog, I apologize most heartily for any objectionable content.

And…my main man Shane is working on stopping it permanently as we speak, so I don’t expect too much more dallying with my comments section.

I tried to put a good face one it and say, gee, maybe it’s because I’m popular….

Uh, I don’t think so.

If I was popular people would be offering me free Journey tickets and a trip to the American Idol finale and I hope you are all voting for Taylor Hicks!

What? You don’t power vote for two hours after Tuesday’s show like I do? You don’t cry on Wednesday when someone goes home, even if you hated them, like I do?

What’s the matter with you? Oh, you have a life…..what’s it like?

So now you understand why I put the Shinola ad up today. I figured I got hit with so much of what goes with it (if you know what I mean), that it would be a fitting tribute.

I’m rambling.

It’s 0520 and I must be tired.

Funny how an eight-hour run-fest will do that to a person….

    Oh, it’s because you’re popular alright. It’s just that you’re popular among spammers like Igor from Moscow, not guys like Tommy Mottola who could actually get you those tickets 🙁

    Ah, must be the season. I just removed about a hundred spamments (spam-comments, duh!) from CP. I guess the same spammer hit a Grand Rounds post.

    Oh that’s Shinola? Good thing I didn’t step in it!



  • […] If you manage a blog, or multiple blogs, you know what a pain comment spam is. Until last week I had always just viewed it as a necessary evil — dutifully deleting them as they came in — but last week the spam storm hit. […]
