Bonfire of the Vanities - Week 10

The Bonfire of the Vanities hits the decade mark with a serious rebound in numbers and futility! The motto this week is "To Be Or Not To Be". All of this weeks entries have been gladdy offered up to the raging inferno that is the Bonfire...

On with freak show...

Illuminating The Blogosphere With Futile Attempts At Relevance
  • Harvey tries his hand at the overly linked slogan generator. The slogans it came up with for Bad Money make about as much sense as posting pictures of graffiti currency…
  • Jeff's first attempt at a politically oriented post generated a response from an angry reader who called his post "pathetically stupid." While that may be a stretch, "dunderheadedly inane" may apply.
  • Shelli details her grunge poetry period in response to a blog challenge to write in E-Prime (without all forms of "be", "is", and "are" amongst a million other rules). Verbs, verbs, my fortune for a verb.
  • Pixy Misa dares to denigrate Vanilla Coke, while wondering about the taste of Cherry Coke. The gods of the Bonfire will tolerate all sorts of affronts to man and beast, but will not stand for the besmirching of the character of Vanilla Coke (more specifically Diet Vanilla Coke). The gods of the Bonfire suggest that he hire a bodyguard.
  • Susie bores herself to tears. Now if she had explained the apparently twisted knot of a family tree mentioned in the post then we would have something interesting. All roads lead to West Virginia if you know what I mean…
  • Pete hits a Bonfire trifecta: tomatoes, enemas, and cussing. Extra credit for a senior class prank picture.
  • Owen's lame hurricane joke only manages to attract the BLOG-IRAN troll.
  • Margi has some serious issues she needs to resolve with the toilet. Visitors to the Casa Lowery be forewarned.
  • Fritz takes the egging of Arnold to the extreme. Extreme level of beating a dead joke into the ground that is…
  • Steven is captured by Al Gore drones and beaten into submission. After days of intensive browbeating Steven admits that Gore did not invent the Internet, evidence notwithstanding. He also says something about Gore and FEMA, but we all know Al invented FEMA too.
  • McGehee chooses Trekkie reruns over the recall election debate. News crews from all the major networks descend on his house, noting a new trend that the election is turning off voters.
  • Jay links to a "Get Girls Into Bed" hypnotherapy graphic. The bedroom wall poster shrank down quite nicely.
  • Tiger takes a stand on the treatment of women as animals. I won't spoil the surprise of which side he takes…
  • I offer up this post where I discuss the amphibious car. Even I don't care about a floating car. The Delorean joke was lame, and VW Beetles already float, or so I've been told. There's always alcohol involved in the floating VW stories, so take them with a grain of salt.

Comical, yet tragic. Like when a clown dies.
