Worthy of the Blogging Hall of Fame

Speaking of funny stuff, my all-time favorite is Steve Graham's month long torture of some Nigerian e-mail spammers. It's the literary equivalent of a smart cat playing with retarded mice. He has these scam artists twisted up like pretzels and the month-long one-sided "battle" would make a great book. I've read this stuff a dozen times and still laugh just as hard each time. To read these classic posts and replies go to Hog On Ice and check the right margin for the Archives by Category and click on "Good Morning Nigeria." To get the chronology correct, start at the bottom of the page since the more recent posts appear at the top. Everytime I see the guy holding up the sign reading "Biff Wellington," I almost pee in my pants.

Were it not for blogs, this stuff would exist only in the minds of truly talented folks-people like Steve and Patrick Hughes and thousands of others now have an outlet and they constantly put to shame the kind of creative material found in the mainstream press. If you've got time, check out the many links on my blogroll-you will find a treasure trove of great stuff from folks from all over the country and the world. Click them and if you like them, bookmark them and share the good stuff with others. That's what it's all about. Have fun!

It cannot have effect as a matter of fact, that's exactly what I suppose.
