Aaaah, spam commenters. You bring me joy. You write weird things. You make little sense. You give me a reason to visit the Akismet folder where all of you reside and click the “Empty Spam” button. Lately, there are hundreds of you on a daily basis. More work for Akismet, more blog fodder for me. The best of your comments have already made it into previous comment spam roulette editions. Today, the tradition continues. Let’s [.....]

I have mentioned this in passing once before, but now’s time to expand on that: I’m extremely clumsy. Before you start with the “Oh yeah, me too, totally,” shut up! You know nothing! It’s almost become trendy lately to be a clumsy dork, so now everyone’s trying to jump on the klutz bandwagon. Well I’m here to tell you right now: I’ve been a klutz since before you were born.

I’ve recently returned from a previously unannounced trip to Czech Republic, where we attended a family wedding. It went well. Alcohol was consumed, food was eaten, words were exchanged, fun was had.

Have you been watching the headlines lately? The ones that pop up everywhere online, from Facebook to whatever other sites there are apart from Facebook? Have you noticed a trend?

How many times has this happened to you? Hopefully, the answer was “zero,” but if it wasn’t, I won’t laugh at you. Too much. We’ve all been distracted by our phones at some point or an…wait…ah, nevermind, just got a phone notification reminding me to feed my virtual pet lizard. Where was I? Yes, phones can be distracting. However, distracted walking doesn’t often lead to hilarious outcomes like the above, does it? Well, it turns [.....]

If there’s one thing about me, it’s that I get a lot of spam from all sorts of marketers. If there’s two things about me, it’s that I every once in a while I troll those marketers for shits and giggles. This is one of those times. Below you find our email correspondence in its entirety. Have at it! James Manor: “Top 5 Reasons to work with sovrn Holdings” Hi there, I’m interested in the [.....]
