Number 1 was pretty funny. You could always have a gingerbread mud hut!

These are all excellent. But I’d like to see Marinka rate comments. Would you rate comments from your own blog or others? Or your own comments on other blogs? This could be taken in so many different directions… I expect a full pictoral of the gingerbread mud hut.

Oh God, can you imagine if he showed up for the inauguration with an afro and all that shit? That would be so totally funny.

I just love the way your mind works. You could have rocked ANY of those topics!


Magpie November 6, 2008 at 7:33 pm

Snorted out loud at #1.

But, really, I want to meet the gingerbread house friend.


phd in yogurtry November 6, 2008 at 7:36 pm

Go with the fro! That is hilarious!


Mama Ginger Tree November 6, 2008 at 8:35 pm

You are such a tease.

Can we please have #2 and #8? Please?


Heinous November 6, 2008 at 8:36 pm

lol…a ‘fro would be great. Biden should get one too. Now that’s party unity.


K and/or K November 6, 2008 at 9:09 pm

How about a gingerbread fro?
Love your humor…happy to stumble on in here..,

I am on my knees, begging you to write a post about this…

Why Obama Should Totally Grow an Afro in Time for the Inauguration.

I love those old photos of him.

They still have kooky pens? I once had a pen that was attached to a straw, so you could drink your milk and do your homework at the same time.

Please don’t rate comments. Another blog I read has comment of the day, and I never win. It makes me feel all inferior.

And I so think that you should pick neighbors and friends for the list, because then the person in the relationship who said “Let’s have a list” is all worried that you have a list of people you know that you would sleep with given the chance. That’s the key to a happy marriage.

mud hut gingerbread house. that’s about what mine look like. when i pretend i’m going to make one.


katy (aka funny girl) November 7, 2008 at 10:07 am

I’m voting for exploring all aspects of #4. It could even be a three-part series.

(This comment sucks. You’re probably going to rate it really low. Damn it.)


Heather, Queen of Shake Shake November 7, 2008 at 10:15 am

Exactly why were #2 and #3 rejected?

I want to know about this rating comment business because I’m pretty fucking competitive.


Andy November 7, 2008 at 11:56 am

I prefer tepees.
Also a rejected blog post: Kittens: Furry little balls of fun or future murderers of mice?


Renée aka Mekhismom November 7, 2008 at 12:08 pm

I love the Blog Contest idea. Sounds cool. Next time I am in NY we should do a meet-up. I could get my prize in person. LOL

Uh, that sounds creepy. I am totally joking – about the lap dance, not the meetup. Meeting up will be cool. LOL

How about a blog on watching Barak in his afro being sworn in in a Gingerbread Mud Hut while getting two lap dances from Martha Stewart and Courtney Cox…?


ms. changes pants while driving November 7, 2008 at 5:59 pm

what about a gingerbread obama-fro?
