The 10 Spot - Like Riding A Bicycle Edition

It's been a while since I've rolled a 10 Spot, but it's like the old saying about never forgeting how to ride a bike... Ten stories you may have missed on the internets.

  1. Nothing but 80 point headlines - the lastest winning creation from Nick Denton's blog labs, Sploid. Their tagline should be, "When reading a second sentance is just too taxing." [ Sploid]
  2. Over at DailyPundit, Lastango is wondering if Wonkette is now a "fake blog." I don't know about fake, but it's sure as hell is ghost-written blog. [Daily Pundit]
  3. The greatest radio stunt ever, except for the fact that it was kind of gay and not really on the radio. [Indystar.com]
  4. Proof a man who represents himself has a fool for a client. [AP]
  5. It's The Man From Horse, and the women too. [Rueters]
  6. New! Anti Monkey Butt Powder. [PunditGuy]
  7. The Pope is reborn as superhero in the comic book "Incredible Popeman" [AP]
  8. Eliot Spitzer - Attention Whore [Reuters]
  9. Police say Princeton graduate student Michael Lohman cut and took locks of hair from about nine Asian female University students without their knowledge or consent and poured his own bodily fluids into the drinks of Asian female students more than 50 times. [Daily Princetonian]
  10. Mashups go bigtime. [Allah Is In The Poor House]

Number nine caught my eye. How do you not feel your hair being cut.

Regarding "2.," I predict that fake blogs are soon to be all the rage. Fake, faux, false...liberal bloggers from Hollywood, tabloids written by assistants, publicists and heavy criticism and comments prevented from impacting the Glittery by many among the help.

You can blame Sploid's Denton/Gawker "Media" ("1.) and Adrianna Huffington for that. Not like it was the latter's idea, I am thinking.

Regarding "7.", I am conflicted, what with the Pope wearing his anti-evil cape.

And pondering the advice of E. Mode, "NO CAPES!"

A conflict...

If Wonkette can be called "... (Below threshold)

If Wonkette can be called "a blog," then E. Mode can dictate Papal fashion, at least in this recent graphic permutation.

Wonkette a fake blog? You're kidding!

(Sorry. Just got bit by a sarcasm bug.)

Re "Sploid," I couldn't agree more. I have a large monitor, but those headlines are too big.

Gives the term "special sauce" new meaning.

And to think, McGehee, the "creator" of Sploid (and Wonkette among others) is soon to premiere the Huffington "Publishing" Hollywood bloggers.

I wonder which one of them will be the first to cry when they get an inkling of what is being said about them -- not like these people are not protected enough from reality, now they'll have Denton's fauxness to represent them in "blogging."

This is going to be an interesting year, not that it hasn't been already.

Something about tabloid blogging now representing the Left on the internet...I mean, there IS a story there.

RE #3, am I the only one who saw some irony in the name of the man accused of luring men into his home to watch them disrobe - RICHARD BROWN?!?!?

Gawker Media is an abomination. Not to blogging - if the reader is dumb enough to think a corporate web site is a blog, that's their problem - but to decent writing in general. They're just trashy.

Thank God for #6. Trust me,... (Below threshold)

Thank God for #6. Trust me, as a graduate of the military's Jungle Warfare School in Panama, "monkey butt" is real. Millions are silent victims.

I wish I had that powder during rainy season in July in Central America. I had to borrow some sort of shit my buddy bought in Thailand, which worked but made my ass smell like a pack of shitty menthol cigarettes.

Should I ever get thrown into the jungle or desert again, I will seriously consider bringing a vial of monkey butt powder. Imagine the testimonials!

"We were waiting to ambush a column of terrorists in the desert outside of al-Najaf, but my itchy ass almost gave us away. Thank the stars for Monkey Butt Powder!"

I'm sure you've all caught ... (Below threshold)

I'm sure you've all caught this, but I should point it out anyway. If "reading a second sentence is just too taxing," who's going to read the tagline to begin with?
