So, what do we have... like 5 people gracious enough to occasionally visit our blog at this point?
Let's start a new game that we'll swear to play every week and then either forget or realize it's stupid and never repeat...
The Friday Top 5!!!!!!
Here's the scoop... we, and by "we" I mean "me" or "me and Sal" whenever "Sal" remembers that he has a blog, provide the topic. Over the weekend we collect responses to the Top 5!!!!!! in the form of a comment thread and publish the best 5 of them (if we can gather 5 responses) to our completely ridiculous, takes a year to load, TGI Fridays-style right-hand column on Monday.
Therefore, The Friday Top 5!!!!!! is actually published on Monday which is totally fucking weird... but who gives a shit, nobody reads this blog anyway.
(My apologies to Shaw, Kevin, Randal and apparently the occasional Blue Gal)
The idea is to generate conversation about the week's events in as cynical and snarky a way possible.
I'm not usually a "joiner" and have rarely been a "starter"... but fuck it, right?
This week's Friday Top 5!!!!!! topic:
Two years ago it would have been much more fun to have done this about the dems... but with Palin rearing her pretty little head, Michael Steel claiming to be able to fake out the media, and the release of the minority budget plan - I figure this is a good time to poke fun at the Gay Old Patriarchy.
So, have at it - but keep in mind that I am not above publishing the The Friday Top 0!!!!!! if you fuckers don't submit anything.
Have a nice weekend.
